Well for years I had always heard my mom saying how much she wished she had a corner cabinet to display some of her dishes in. Well now that I have graduated college and a place to build it I figured it would make a great birthday present for her. The face frame is all solid red oak, the bottom of the top half is oak plywood, the doors are solid oak with 1/4 inch oak plywood inserts, the back side pieces are birch plywood painted an off white color (so her dishes will stand out and not get lost in the wood). For the bottom halfs shelf and bottom I used a piece of sanded pine plywood because thats all I had on hand, I know oak would have looked nicer but its behind the doors and i was in a hurry to get done and thats all i had laying around. I made templates out of scrap 1/4 ply and had the local glass shop make me two glass shelves in wich i glued oak trim to the front of to dress it up. I used mortise and tenion joinery and pocket screws along with gluing and clamping. ALL fasteners are hidden. She loved it and it should last her years and years to come. Oh yeah i also put a led light in it so i will light up for her at night. Now i can not take all the credit because since i was in a time crunch i bought the plans and then built the cabinet. I did make some changes to the plans because I did not agree with some of their jointery methods. Any questions, comments, suggestions always welcome.
