This is a project that I finished last week. It was my first attempt at building a curved front cabinet. This cabinet is the first of many cabinets we are building for a multimillion dollar house near Charlotte, NC.

Great job. Is there walnut veneer on the center of the drawer fronts.

Looks great.

Great job! Forgive my ignorance, but how is the raised molding done with cope and stick panels like that?

Thanks!

This is a great job.
Talking of “curve drawer” did you steam-bend solid wood or laminate them?
Thanks

Thanks for all the comments, Yes the panel in the middle is 1/4” ply with walnut veneer. The molding is an applied molding which we wetted in water then put in a jig that matched our curve and let to dry for at least 30 hours. The rails were made on the bandsaw and sanded. Since this was a vanity the curved fronts were screwed to the cabinet and not applied to a drawer. The next ones we are working on will have curved doors also and a carved front on top. Will add pictures when that one is done in a couple of weeks.

These are false fronts for sinks. They are laminated and assembled.

I’m sorry Dan. I did not realize I had not posted that information. This cabinet was built from Mahogany and has a burl veneer panels. No special jigs or fixtures on ths cabinet. Just used 10/4 lumber and cut the bowed top and bottom rails on a bandsaw to the arch.
