It’s been awhile since the last posting, but several of you, were asking about the corner cabinet in my last project photos. I’ve loaded a few pictures of the Shaker corner cabinet made of solid figured cherry. The flat door panels are also made of solid cherry and were done with inverted raised panels. I love the knob/ catch design on the doors and find a use for it every time I can. You simply rotate the outside knob which turns the interior stay that is secured by a brass pin. The cabinet comes apart in two pieces making delivery and transportation easier. The General Finishes’ Waterbourne Satin Pre-Catalyzed Urethane finish on the cabinet is one I’ve used many times with good results every time.

Beautiful, great craftsmanship, one amazing project. You can’t go wrong with Shaker, or cherry. How did you create the cove molding?, table saw?, router?, or hand planes? Like you, I like that door latch, works great, easy to make, and very authentic.
Thanks for showing.

Thanks for all of the positive feedback.

Oldtool—The cove crown was roughed out on the table saw and finished with the largest hollow plane I had, plus the requisite sanding to smooth it out for finishing. I suppose you could make the cove with a router table but the cove diameter would require a bit so large it would need a shaper sized motor to turn it. The table saw is a great way to get short runs of cove moulding.

Awesome work, very beautiful piece.
I am currently making a piece that is very similar to this. I was wondering how you went about attaching the face frame to the side frame which is ofcourse angled. Would you by any chance have any pics of your build process. I am looking for ideas on how to go about it.

Thanks alot and once again, great work.
