My Lastest project for a Very Important client (mother in law). It’s a sewing center although closer in design to a dining room buffet cabinet. Anyway, I incorporated all the elements She wanted into the plans I drew up.
It’s 74-1/4” long,22” wide and 36” tall , the casework is made from 3/4 poplar ply, and the face frame, molding, doors etc. are solid poplar (I knew I was going to paint it). It features, Five drawers ( HD ball bearing slides), one raised panel door, five raised panel drawer fronts, european hinges, two cubby’s for wicker baskets,
hand turned feet (Me), and all the applied molding I milled my self.The larger drawer fronts are were jointed and glued up. I did cheat a bit on this and use pocket holes for the drawer boxes. The turned feet started as four by four blockes jointed and glued up. I know what you thinking, “Wheres the counter top?”, well she isn’t quite sure what she want’s yet! Oh well It weighs about three hundred lbs, and I’m not lokking forward to putting it in her 2nd floor sewing room.
So how’d I do? Do you think I’m good for a few brownie points?
