Good day

If you remember the “TV stand”, my wife designed and ordered a glass cabinet to come on top of one of the three units.

The width (39½”) and the depth (22”) fits to the lower cabinet but the height is 55” and I used 1-3/16” thick Oak.

You could see the process of cutting the boards on my other posts on the table saw so it will not be here.

because the subject contains 48 pictures, I divided it into two parts otherwise, it will be too “heavy” to open the post.

Here are the first 25 pics of the amateur’s work up to the “ready to glue the carcass”.

Regards
niki

Thank you Niki for reminding me of all the hard work there is to building a piece like this. I especailylie the way you are puttin in your glass. When I built my wifes curio, I dadoed out all the framing so that I could put the glass inside the wood. It really looked nice when it was finished, but having three grown kids and grandchildren, at the time lived with us some of the front glass somehow got broken and had to temporarly place plastic inside until I can get some more clear glass to replace them. your Glass shelving looks better than some of the shops I’ve seen works done out of. You can pat yourself on the back for me and say, ” this is really a job WELL DONE” . Thank you for showing us your glass shelving unit. Really a piece to be PROUD OF. Your Friend Jim

Thank you so much

Jim
All the glass cabinets that I built are with “Think ahead” that one day the glass may break and I’ll be in trouble so, I hold the glass with strips (remember the post “cutting strips on TS”?) and small screws that I stain the heads so they are almost invisible. You’ll see the strips in “part II”.
