Quite a few years ago Workbench magazine held a contest. The rules for the contest were: Whatever you make has to start out as a box that was 25” X 28”. Send photos of the completed project, & copy of your plan.
That took a lot of thought, And I came up with a plan for this Wall hung Curio cabinet. I had some beveled glass I had salvaged from an old dilapidated house door, so I had to design the cabinet to fit the size of the glass. That took a lot adjusting to meet the specifications of the contest.
I used Minnesota White Spruce, with a Dark Walnut stain, & Satin poly finish.
I’m sorry to say, but never even placed in the contest, But my wife ended up with a curio cabinet that she always wanted.
