This is the second cabinet I made. Same Sommerfeld tongue and groove router bits. Solid maple faceframe, maple plywood carcass and shelves, 1/2”offset euro hinges, glass panel ogee doors. I made fewer mistakes this time, but still not really visible.
On the first cabinet I made, I was routing one of the grooves on sides, and wondering why the hell is the groove making a perfect arc, until I realize the back side of the board is riding on the bench to the side of the router table – doh! That’s why I need to get things put up and out of the way!
I used iron on veneer for the front edge of the shelves. I learned I don’t like trimming veneer. I have a trimmer – so so results, hand trimming with a razor is dangerous etc. etc. Finally, I ran the shelves through the router to get most of it off, and finished by hand sanding a nice edge.
I take it that all project photos have to be horizontal? When the second two photos uploaded, they rotated back to the sideways view. Sorry.
