Jelly cupboard I made last fall for a school auction. Goofy thing ran me ragged. I think if it hadn’t been for David, I would have given up on the thing. You can notice the rather large top section. First I planned to make a lift top. Then I thought of putting in a drawer instead. Ended up not doing either. Never thought of it until it was all glued up. I ended up building a (hidden) box and locked it up inside with a magswitch.
I had intended to put adjustable shelves in the thing but without thinking about what I was doing, I glued in cleats for the shelves. (altzheimers or just stupid?)
The door you see is the second door. The first door was finished and even installed when I noticed the bottom tin panel was wrong side out. I had ordered the panels from a new place and they were much thinner than I thought. They were hard to install and keep the buckles out. I ended up using epoxy and framed the inside. When I noticed what I had done (after the door was hung) I just built a new one.
New one built, taped in place to make sure I could get it aligned. Mounted it and….finish
Finish was with minwax tung. I was out of the 100% pure tung and needed to get this thing delivered.
School got $350 for it.
