Handmade by Chris Becksvoort, this gorgeous blue wall cabinet is Chris’ compilation of several different small hanging Shaker cupboards. The size is close to many of the originals. Many of the cabinets had slab doors, while a few had frame and panel doors like this one. Most were made in the New England communities. This cabinet is made from New Gloucester white pine and painted with Old Village latex Village Tavern Blue. Features magnetic closure, hinged panel door, and adjustable shelves. Can be hung on the wall of used on a table top. ~A great Shaker herb cabinet!
Measures 18.5″ H to top of hanger x 13″ W x 7″ D. Signed and dated on the reverse.

INDIVIDUALLY BUILT …
Why invest in furniture from a one-man shop on a dirt road in New Gloucester, Maine? Certainly my prices can’t compete with mass produced, factory-made furniture. Production shops deal with the average needs of the average consumer. I build only twenty to thirty pieces each year and can take the time to build a special size or include a small drawer, secret compartment, or carved monogram. I construct each piece individually, taking as much time as I need to achieve perfection. Upon completion I sign, date and register each piece. My clients value the beauty of solid wood and appreciate things finely constructed. A desk I build for you will reward you each time you sit down to write or pull out a drawer, and will do so for a lifetime. Joy is in the details that make a difference.
