« Part 2: Phase 3 taking shape. Part 3 of Blonde's Maple Martini Cabinet series Part 4: Making the Raised Panel doors. »

Phase IV
This phase consisted of sanding and installing the center stile for the upper cabinet. Then I needed to make some small supports for the back of the shelf’s, to ensure there would be no sagging over the yrs. l then filled in the Brad nails holes and sanded some more.

Now to the Crown Moulding which I love doing. With that said, we all know it can be very time consuming to get it right. Because we chose to make a Neo-angle cabinet, we had a few more cuts at 22.5 degrees compared to the normal 45 degree cuts. We all have the best intentions when making a project and sometimes the results are frustrating. The Crown took me 3-4 hours, but I think the results we pretty good. ( I didn’t have to go back for more moulding,,, yea!!!!!!!! LOL ).....

Phase V will be making doors.
Thx for looking

Looks really sweet Ken, the detail of the dental molding and Crown molding look very professional.

I think you nailed it Ken. The crown molding is just the right proportions (to my eye) and you did an excellent job of installing it. The whole cabinet just keeps getting better and better.

You’re really NAILING this project, Ken!

Perfect at every step!

Did you make the Crown Moulding or Buy it?
... with that dentil portion there, the width had to be Right ON for it to come out nice and even… I guess you had that planned from the start… Yes? Really turned out GREAT!! Beautiful job!

It’s nice watching a plan come together… yeah…. :)

Thank you!

Thx eveyrone for the kind words. I was going to make the crown but time with Pops was an issue. So I bought the crown as he was only out for a cpl weeks.( couldn’t work him everyday LOL ) I plan on mirroring the arch on the lower rail into the upper doors. Blondie wants the bottom doors square.

Thank-you for the support.
