These were doors that I had to replicate from a picture provided by a customer, I really had to rack my brain to figure out how to make those little bulbis thingies. I never got a picture of the finished cabinet, but it turned out nice.

Nice, I really like the pulls on the drawer fronts.

That’s great. Thanks for the pix in progress. Too bad you couldn’t get a photo of the finished product. Bet they look good on.

That ShopFox is a good little shaper, Dustin. And it was most definitely a fun little brain challenge. Its nice to have these unique little project come through the shop as a break from the usual push-push-push…

Originally I tried to freehand the bulbis thingies with a bandsaw and an edge sander, but that was quickly ruled out as a time consuming inconsistent process. A 45 degree router bit on a tremmel arm was the way to go.
