Blondie has wanted this cabinet for a while now on the open wall if the kitchen. She has collected special martini glasses from our travels and wanted to display them in a glass cabinet. I had started the cabinet once but hated the wood I was using, so scraped the first one. My pops has been bored out of his mind after mom had passed last yr, so I thought, why not get him out here and help me build a cabinet. He is also a wood worker and has made many display cabinets for people and their homes.
We came up with a Neo-angle design for the flow of walking into the hallway and family room. The base is 60×25x34 with 4 doors. Blondie didn’t want any drawers on it. (We all know how that works) There will be 4 inset doors 2
15x30 & 2 12×30. It will have a butcher block top 1.5 inches thick. To get the angles we cut the stiles at 22.5 degrees.
Today will be cutting the top to size and making the 2nd layer of base molding. When we sanded a black sap strip came out on the front toe plate. This got darker the more we sanded, which looks like somone kicked it. Pops had the idea of the 2nd layer of homemade moulding killing two birds with one stone..This will hide that mark and give it more visual interest and the toe plate. More 22.5 cuts smile.
We have had fun and some great debates on how to do things and or should do things. Two alpha males going the same direction from completely different roads. Lol. Well, time for breakfast and get out to the shop.
Thx for looking and all comments are more than welcome.
