Here is the cherry corner cabinet that is the companion piece to the vanity that I posted a year ago. The most challenging part of this project (other than turning the thing over from time to time in the shop) was getting the joints along the lengths of the wings and the face frame to come together.
Most of the cherry came from scraps from a now-defunct furniture company. The shelves and interior are 3/4 inch maple veneered plywood (edged with cherry). It appears that the floor of our bathroom slopes downward by about 3/4 inch, which explains the shims at the bottom right. I had not anticipated that. I’ll need to add a base trim molding to the bottom to cover up the gap. I may also add a molding to the top, but i much prefer the simplicity it has now.
The cabinet is finished with oil, several coats of poly, and rubbed finishing wax. I think it’s interesting what a difference a flash and some different lighting make. The first picture really shows the character and figure in the cherry.
Cheers. And happy Valentines’ Day!
