Had a vision about bending a cabinet and still making it functional. After few rough drafts, came up with an idea of how to do this. Unsure if I could pull off a full scale, e.i., five-foot tall one, decided to make a model first to work out the bugs and solve fundamental problems on small scale; plus budget didn’t permit building full size one as of yet.
Didn’t know what dimensions to use building this so winged it. In retrospect, should have made the top square as opposed to rectangular. At least that was the idea in my mind and drawing. Oh well, came out pretty much as I had envisioned.
Was tired of just copying everyone else’s designs and ideas so I designed one. Still undetermined as to whether or not to build full scale one yet. Not sure if idea/design would appeal to the general (buying) public.
Basically cut out front, back and bottom from 1/4” plywood, glued together; then, used wood-back maple veneer to run up each side with wood glue. Had to use drop-off pieces of same shape to help clamp in place until glue dried. Full size one would require using 3/8” bendable plywood for the sides. Tiny drawers were pretty tedious with such a small scale. Veneered front, back and drawer fronts with maple and offset with high-contrast of walnut for handles.
