This display cabinet was custom build for a friend of ours, to display an heirloom Dorothy doll, from the Wizard of Oz.

If you are interested in the details of the design of this cabinet, you can check out my shop update that covers the design of ot here

If you are interested in how I made the custom cove moulding on this cabinet, I made a Straightedge video on precisely that topic. You can find the video here

In this project, I made heavy use of my grooving planes. I used them to make the dados that accept the glass frames, to make the rabbets on the back that accept the back panel, and to make the spline joints that join the cove moulding to the bases. You can find out more about my grooving planes here.

I also have this project posted at my website that I use for clients, here.

Ah, this would be the reason for the “cove molding” post. This looks great. It has a very light feel to it.
