I had a little spare time to finally finish my foyer remodel. I had some dead wall space under my staircase and wanted something unique to fill the void. I decided to build a built-in curio cabinet. Everything including the shelves are crafted out of solid red oak. The only plywood used was for the back. I had never made triangle doors before and found it to be rather challenging. Especially when it came time to clamp the glue joints together. I used triangle blocks and tacked them to the frames so I could have something square to clamp to. It ended up turning out great. I put 3/16” weatherstripping around the edges of the doors to help keep dust out since the european hinges hold the doors away from the face frames about 1/8”. Now it’s time to load it up with trinkets.
