Good day

After you have seen the WIP, here is the completed cabinet.

I installed the mirror and the back in the garage and than carried the heavy thing to it’s last location (I hope) and installed the side glasses and the doors.

The mirror and the glasses were ordered from local glass shop and can you imagine? (yes, you can), I made mistake in the mirror length dimension, ME, that never make mistakes (again my nose it getting longer for some reason) and I’m using Metric measuring system!!!
Well, it cost me another $4 to change it to the correct length, another lesson…

Regards
niki

Thank you Debbie

One of the things that I’m lucky with, is that my wife loves and designs only “Square” furniture. I think (because I didn’t try) that to build all those “Rounded” furniture is much more difficult and I admire the guys that can make them.

Good Job Niki. Who’s the lucky person that got to help you carry that from the garage? Everything seems to fit together nicely.

Very nice Niki. Did you have to move it upstairs every night. Since you wife uses your workshop to park her car.

Niki -

Awesome job! I can not believe you made a mistake with the mirror glass. I would expect that you used a jig and dial caliper for that measurement!

Thank you

My wife helped me, this small woman is strong like a horse, she moved herself all the other cabinet with the glass unit….and I did not notice it…

Karson
Oh no, there was enough space for the unit to stand there with the car but sometimes when I’m painting, we leave the car outside for a few nights.

Not only that I admit my mistake but I’m also “pinched” LOL
What tells you that everybody makes mistakes and those that doesn’t….well, they are just liars…

Hi Niki,

You have to be real proud of yourself ! It’s a lot of work, looks great….the finish is beautifull,

overall, I give a 10.

As for the mirror, well, maybe it could be the supplier….

have a good day,

pierre

Beautiful addition to your entertainment center.
You must have measured to big otherwise it would have cost you more than $4.

Is there a built in glass polishing jig ? LOL

Thank you for your kind replies

The measuring mistake was all mine and I measured too short and had to change all the mirror but because I’m buying from this guy all my glass and mirrors, he made it $4 just for me…

My wife has a build-in glass polishing jig, it’s called….niki (you can still see the 409 on the coffee table on the top picture).

Lovely work, Niki.

Don’t blame the Metric System, perhaps your tape measure shrunk. LOL
