Hand-Built Cabinets

At Norsk Wood Works Else is the chief cabinet maker and builder. She makes many different styles of traditional Scandinavian cabinets, both creating the designs and carving them herself  She specializes in cabinet styles from the late 1800’s in Norway. Her cabinets often feature frame and panel doors with hand-carved panels and carved crowns, and her drawers often feature hand cut dovetails joints.

Else also makes full size hutches, which are called “Fram Skap” in Norwegian. Her corner cabinets are truly special and the style is rare to find anywhere else. Else makes both hanging corner cabinets and floor models.

She builds her cabinets out of butternut, basswood, and white pine.
