« Part 17: Hiding the disaster Part 18 of Cabinet Progress series no next part

So the doors were on, but what a fright inside.

I made the shelves out of vertical grain fir plywood ….

with edge glued lips of solid fir.

I read once that leaving the fronts thicker adds strength to the shelf.

My new Rockler pin jig in action

Antique brass shelf pins….

Shelves installed. The top is only 12” wide. Finish: Shellac and poly.

So much better. Wife is happy.

Next time… The upper cabinet door repairs.

Cheers!

Looks good, Giz. Can I ask you what you are using for stain on the fur? I have a 1906 home and I am beginning to restore the fir. Not sure what to use. I have replaced the rest of the wood in the home with Quartersawn white oak and am debating what direction to take. Any help would be appreciated!

Nice job, Giz. This is a major reorg of the cabinet. Now you can actually get to things in there.
