Made this for a customer. The case is 30” tall x 20” wide and the crown adds a little over an inch. The crown molding was made usining a router table for the small rounds and the table saw for the large, to smooth out everything, a scraper was used. The case corners are dovetailed, I didn’t take pictures of them.

For those that are starting out, the tools used:

Power tools:
Planer
Jointer
Bandsaw
Table saw
Pin nailer – for the crown moulding

Hand tools:
Sargent #407 smoothing plane
Dovetail saws – rip and cross cut
Tenon saw – rip
Shoulder plane
Record #7 jointer plane
BU jointer
Variety of scrapers
Router plane
Record #43 for the tongue and grooves
Mitre saw
Chisels – bench and mortising

Finish is Spar varnish (washrooms get humid)

If you have questions, I have been very busy, post your questions and I will get back as soon as I can. It may not be today so don’t get mad at me for not responding as fast as I would like to.

Thanks for looking.

A beautiful and well made cabinet. Like the wood choice, the crown molding and the finish set it off.

Congrats David. I really like that cabinet. I bet your client was pleased with it too.

When I make cabinets like these to order, I charge nothing up front – if they like it, they pay me, if not, I take it home. I was told that they really love it. I have never had anything turned down by a paying customer.

If something is returned or my wife doesn’t like something I make, it is either 1) donated, 2) given to a family member, or 3) sold on fleabay or something. Usually doesn’t get past #2.
