After many months (weekends mostly) I’ve finally finished this round cabinet for a customer.
I have to thank Les Hastings for his help and expertise in curved cabinets. His blog series
here on LJ on curved doors made making the cabinet doors and drawers a lot easier as well as
answering questions that I had for him.
The entire cabinet is made out of white oak. The panels in the doors and drawer front is white
oak veneer over bending plywood. The curved rails and drawer fronts were made by bending strips
over forms using Weldwood plastic resin glue. The styles were formed using Les’s routing jigs
to make the the inside concave and outside convex to match the radius of the doors.
The cabinet is 32” tall, 36” wide and 16”deep.
This was by far the hardest piece I have built. I almost had to make a jig or fixture for any
cut that had to be made as nothing is square as we generally know it.
