Posted October 2023 Featured Piece "Sunburst Cabinet" by Bob McKee

Bob McKee is a frequent contributor to the Featured Piece of the Month column.  This month Bob brings to our attention a delightful piece highlighting the door panels using a bookmatched sunburst design.  But that wasn't enough.  When the doors are open the sunburst design is seen inside the cabinet because Bob creates the same effect in the back of the cabinet.

Another nice feature is the top edge of the cabinet.  Bob used a creative process for installing inlay and banding with the help of his "lovely old Stanley No. 46 skewed plow plane".  This is a person who built a display cabinet, which was featured in this column last year, for some of his prized hand planes.

Perhaps the best part of making this Sunburst Cabinet, however, was his enjoyment.  Bob seemed to surprise himself upon reflecting that the final work "pretty much" matched his original concept.
