I had made a pine corner cupboard before this one and this one is the same except I added a door. Like the first one, I made this one with hand tools only. I like challenging myself to do this by hand.
I had some problems with getting the rails all the same width. I can do two of them without any problems. Doing 3 or more wasn’t working for me. So I made one set the same and made another set a bit bigger and adjusted the plan dimensions to fit it.
I could not not find a keeper for this door. The side rail and the door form a 45 degree angle and all the keepers I saw were 90 degree. I made this one out of oak and stained it with ebony dye.
The inside I finished with shellac and the outside with blue paint. I still haven’t done the rabbets on the door. I didn’t make them deep enough to account for the paint. I had to plane them again after I got done painting the door.
