I have a corner cupboard in the kitchen which is huge but very hard to access.
I wanted to buy some opening frames that came out when the door opened. Haffle products, but none were suitable.
So I made some from MDF.
Interesting material to work with to say the least, A Dust extractor is a must.
The MDF then sucks up paint like a sponge, however has a very smooth finish
First off I modified the “hidden” section of the existing cupboard by removing some of the material and added a fixed panel. This was to put lids in and also to be able to see into the area.
Took 2 days to complete mainly due to the paint drying, so what to do while waiting? check out LJ of course.
I by chance saw Ohad Milners work, and the images inspired me to make a hammer while I was waiting around. (His work worth a look at there is some amazing work to view)
So while I was waiting I glued up three pieces of “scrap” Silky Oak with titebondIII then with the belt linisher and Oscillating sander set to work. Finishing it by hand finishing and then added a coat of LLWW secret Oil formula. Here is the result.
