The cabinet shown herewith is a very convenient piece of furniture. It is a convenient stand for books and magazines and may also serve as a receptacle for smoking paraphernalia. The cabinet proper is provided with a door on either side, hinged at the bottom, so as to swing down and form a temporary shelf. A pair of brass chains should be attached to each door, in order to keep the door from dropping below the horizontal position. The four leg pieces should be first gotten out and mortised to receive the four crosspieces, and also the end panels. which are let into the sides of the legs for a depth of three-eighths of an inch. The two lower crosspieces which support the lower shelf should be tenoned at the ends to one-half by one and three-fourths inches. The upper crosspieces which support the bottom of the cabinet proper are tenoned at the ends down to one-half by one and one-half inches. Next, get out the eight little slats and cut a tenon one-fourth by one inch on each end and then mortise the crosspieces to match. After placing the slats and the crosspieces together, slip on the legs. The shelf for the bottom of the cabinet proper should now be gotten out, and after being finished to the correct size, it should be very carefully notched, in order to pass around each of the four legs, beyond which it projects for a distance of three and one-half inches. If it is so desired, four holes three-fourths of an inch in diameter may be bored in each of these two projecting ends, to serve as a pipe rack. The lower shelf should now be fitted in place after taking due care to see that its length is such as to maintain the legs perfectly parallel This shelf should be attached to the cross-pieces by means of dowel pins or with three wood screws on either end, which are screwed from the lower side of the shelf at an angle into the cross-pieces. The two doors are of three-quarter-inch lumber and each one should be provided with a pair of cross strips on the inside, to prevent warping. The top should be placed in position last, and is held.
