« Part 1: Phase II Part 2 of Blonde's Maple Martini Cabinet series Part 3: Phase IV Crown moulding »

It’s phase 3 and it is starting to look like a cabinet lol. We got the top, bottom and shelf in and secured. Made the arched lower rail as well. The supports for under the shelf have been made and glued/nailed in and need to be sanded. Blondie didn’t want pins or adjustable shelves. Her cabinet right lol. The center stile has been fitted but needs sanding and pocket holed. I have rough cut and fit the back into the rabbet as well.

Today the crown moulding will be going on and some sanding will continue. She’s still deciding on the back splash as of now. So if bought maple plywood for now. Might start making the doors today as well…

Thx for looking.

Looks terrific Ken. I like the arch, it gives the whole cabinet a graceful look.

Thx everyone for the kind words. Means a lot from the people I respect so much. We all work so hard to make the best project we can and are our own worst critics.

Thx for taking the time to look.
