Indian cabinet



 This is a beautiful wall cabinet in Indian style, very fashionable at the turn of the XX century in England, due to the influence of the  oriental colonies. This style of decoration and ornamentation was used extensively in houses and palaces and of course extended to fretwork design and other crafts. This wall cabinet is a typical example of this period. Its ornamentation evokes the taste of Indian architecture and design.

  I have completely restored this pattern from a very old English design, redrawing every single line with the precision of modern graphic techniques. The cabinet is now very easy to make, if you are precise enough with the scroll saw you will not need to sand or correct any pieces. The main larger piece in the back has been divided in smaller sections for easier cutting. These sections are easily assembled with dovetail joints. The splitting of this piece also permits making the cabinet in larger sizes.

 The pattern of this cabinet has been designed to use 1/4 inches wood or 6 mm wood (except doors).  Any other wood thickness can be used scaling the pattern accordingly, in fact the design calls for a large size. Besides the wood two mirrors and four hinges are necessary for the doors. The doors can also be finished with linen or even better with two art prints with Indian motifs. These are the measures of the cabinet depending on the wood width you use:

  Height Width Depth
1/4 in. wood 32,5 in. 13,5 in. 4,7 in.
3/8 in. wood 48,8 in. 20,2 in 7 in.
4 mm. wood 52,3 cm. 21,6 cm. 7,5 cm.
5 mm. wood 65, 4 cm 27 cm. 9,4 cm.
6 mm. wood 78,5 cm. 32,5 cm. 11,3 cm.
8 mm. wood  104,7 cm. 43,3 cm. 15 cm.
