Glass-Panel Display Cabinet
You won't believe how quickly this project can be built. The key is simple, traditional joinery.
Showing off is what this cabinet is all about. And there are enough interesting details that made it jump to the top of the list of projects that you may want to build. Now most people will admire the objects displayed in the “glassed-in” upper section. Or how the cabinet offers both “hidden” and open storage. And the fact that it has a small footprint means you can tuck it in just about anywhere, giving it a lot of versatility. But woodworkers will take notice of the details and straightforward construction that makes this cabinet a stand-out.

Part of the beauty of this project is in its traditional appearance. But what you can't see are the unique router techniques used for building the raised panel doors.
This desk features a huge worksurface and lots of storage. One of the handiest features is a removable panel for computer ventilation and wire access.
The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
