fall front wine server
A 1902 Gustav Stickley Chalet desk was the inspiration for this cabinet, the hand carved latch just intriguing; the overall design is however unique. The door pivots on side-mounted solid brass hinges, as the lower rail tucks under a shelf to hold the front in the serving position. Called a fall front for reason, the server door front is unobstructed by additional hardware or supports and requires a supporting touch in lowering. The hand carved latch at the top rail locks into the projecting top shelf, and a slight inward slant, keep the front closed. The underside of the top shelf is fitted with wooden wine glass holders and a radius top back panel closes the rear of the cabinet behind the server door and top shelf. The ½" through tenon shelves are dadoed into the 1" uprights and are secured with cinching pins, which along with the partial back panel hold the piece rigidly; the lower two shelves are open at the back.
