Subed for a local catamaran yard in Maine. Design and install these two cabinets for them. The Hanging locker out of cherry had caned doors, which slide and two draws. The control cabinet also out of cherry had sliding doors and cut outs for various controls.

Fitting to a cabin’s interior geometry always raises the bar. Looks like you cleared it!

Very nice job. Boat interiors are some of the hardest to do, I second sras.

Nice fits.

Always like to welcome another boat builder. There aren’t many of us.

Welcome, boastbuilder! As a life long sailor, I know that interior furnishings in sailboats are much more than just making cabinets. Great work! Hope to see more of your work!

Looks great! Are there any special considerations when you are building cabinets for a boat (besides shape)? Do the draws have something too keep them from flying open?

When sizing cabinets for curves and odd shapes. You just give yourself extra material to scribe in. The hanging locker and other parts were large then needed for scribe. I cannot remember what we used for hardware to hold draws on the boat, it was recommended by the owner.

Have your say...
