My friends mom wanted me to build her a hanging display cabinet with sliding glass doors. After using sketchup to build a couple prototypes she liked this one the best. The wood used was Walnut which was purchased from Bell Forrest and it turned out pretty good. I put a roman Ogee profile on the top and bottom edge of the cabinet. Everything is joined with dowels and the cabinet is hung with a french cleat that is inset on the back of the cabinet. I finished the cabinet off with 4 coats of Deft Spray Lacquer.
This is a first time I have used dado’s on any project and was surprised at how easy they were to cut using my small compact router. The sliding glass door just slides in dado’s cut around the edge of the cabinet.
I would like to also thank the lumberjock community for taking the time to answer questions I had about using dado for the sliding glass doors. Specifically DLCW and bold1. The glass slides smooth as butter in the dado’s
Thanks for looking at my project.
