Topic tags/keywords: tip book

While the urethane cures on my first real project (pics to come), it’s time to start thinking of the next one. I’m planning on building a painted corner cupboard and I’d like it to have a single glass door for the top portion. It should be small enough to only require 6 panes of glass but I have zero experience in the joinery/steps necessary to plan this out correctly. Can anyone recommend a book, or books, that describe some different techniques involved in making this type of door? My local library system is surprisingly light on techincal woodworking texts.

Norm Abram built one in the NYW many years ago. Find his “Mostly Shaker” book ISBN 0-316-00473-1 published in 1992. The book goes into great detail on the steps needed to build the corner cabinet (page 144-165). If you can’t find a copy try They have used copies available.

Have your say...
