My latest project is a corner cabinet based on plans from a book that I purchased many years ago. I’ve been promising my honey for a while that I would get this done but shop time has been limited due to other obligations. I’ve been pleased with the progress of the project and challenged by the joinery. I’ve given my JessEm slider a real workout, and now wonder “how did I get along without it?”
Primary materials are ash and red oak ply. The lower unit has simple raised panels; the top will have glass insert doors. The face frames are mortise and tenons, with full splines on the 45’ faces. The tops molding is a piece of crown molding from my local Lowes that works well with this piece. I’ve just started fitting the top molding; note to self – you cut crown molding upside-down when using a miter saw.
I should be done with the construction this weekend, and will start the finish. I plan to stain with minwax Golden Oak, followed by 3 or four coats polyurethane.
I’m posting this pic more for learning how to post pictures on this site. I’ll post some pics when it’s done, and filled. I’ve been exploring the site and have seen some awesome work here. I’m looking forward to interacting and learning from this forum and hope that I can share some of my experiences.
