« Part 2: Curved Veneered Front Doors Part 3 of Curved Front End Table series Part 4: Fitting Doors, Curved & Veneered Drawer »

Now that I know the thickness of the doors, I can start working on the internal structure of the piece. I have to account for being able to put the lower shelf and divider for the drawer being put into the piece after glue up, so I have to do some unconventional things to get it to work. After I get those made, I taper the legs and do the initial glue up. Then I modify my bending jig to make the cut to separate the curved front into two doors.

As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

Hi Guy,

Thanks for sharing the videos. I have been enjoying them. One (minor) quibble though—I am inpatient and you take too long between episodes. Don’t keep your adorning fans waiting so long …..

I do have one question for you. When you were dry fitting the front stretcher you noted that the fit was “perfect.” No doubt that it was indeed perfect. But what would you have done if it wasn’t perfect (i.e. the stretcher was not square to the leg)?

I look forward to the next episode.

Greg

Thanks Greg. I wish I had more time in the shop to work to get the vids out quicker! In regards to the front stretcher being square, failure really wasn’t an option. I did not want to have to fit the door to the opening by trimming it, or I might lose the pattern in the veneer on the doors that I wanted. That’s why I used the aluminum angles during the glue up to make sure the opening was perfect. I have a lot of faith in the domino when making joints like this, so my confidence level was pretty high.

What would I have done if it wasn’t perfect? I probably would have sat back and planned a new strategy is all. The doors are cut and hung now (pictures on Instagram) and they came out nice.
