Picked up another load of 4/4 Cherry. After planing to 7/8” I rough cut it to size, straightened out the edges, ripped the corner posts and cut to size.
I laid out the dove tail for the bottom rail on the 2 front corner posts. I drilled out some of the waist then chopped the rest.
Chopping the mortices (after I had drilled most of the waist) at the top of the corner posts.
The bottom of the cabinet will be solid Cherry. To allow for expansion it will sit inside a recess combining the back rail and the piece that covers the bottom. I hope that makes sense.
The back rail and cover is a 2 part glue up after the tenons were cut. When that piece was set i laid out the 2 mortices on each corner and cut them out.
Chopping mortices for the 2 middle uprights.
After a bit of drilling and chopping this is the result.
The first dry fit.
After cutting the side stretchers and machining the tenons I drilled and chopped the mortices.
This is the second dry fit. At this time I’m test fitting the plate rails across the back.
The side assemblies have a 3/8×7/16 deep rabbet around the inside to receive the glass panels.
The uprights on the back received the same treatment as there will be 3 mirrors in the back.
Thanks for looking’.
