The American Magazine I am looking for has on the front page a picture of a cabinet that I made some years back ,I can not remember the Author of the plans for the cabinet , it would have been about
2004-5-6 when I bought the Magazine, This is a photo of the piece that I made, I would like to find which magazine it was , and if any one can help I would appreciate it, thank you in advance.

I checked: American Woodworker, Popular Woodworking, and Fine Woodworking for the years you mentioned and didn’t see it on the cover.

EDIT: I found this: http://www.woodstore.net/magazines/4031-WOOD-Issue-174-December-January-2006-2007.html

I think what your looking for is an article/plan by Lonnie Bird. Our own Fred Hargis did an excellent job of build one of those corner cabinets.

There is no doubt that Lonnie Bird was the Author of the Corner Cupboard Article / plans ,and I would still like to know what the magazine was called I thought it was called The American Woodworker, perhaps some ones memory will be jogged ,should they read this,I have managed to look at the work of the Fred Hargis corner cupboard , and that is one fine piece of workmanship, many thanks. The time frame I thought that the Article might have been in no doubt I am way out ,I just have know Idea now, I have moved house since I made it, and memory has faded.

Could it possibly be this one from the Dec 2002 issue of Popular Woodworking?

http://www.popularwoodworking.com/wp-content/uploads/American-Corner-Cabinet.pdf

I checked Wood, American Woodworker, Popular Woodworking, Woodsmith, and Woodworker’s Journal. The corner cabinet mentioned in the 2006 issue of Wood and this one are the only one’s on the cover.

Thanks wbrisett, for that information, I am beginning to think that it must have been perhaps earlier, I have not had any success checking back on the net on the back issues, but they don’t go back far enough, the magazine that I had, was a one off that was spotted in the paper shop, and later loaned out never to be returned.

There is a short history to the Corner Cabinet, which led me to make further matching Cabinet’s, what happened was it
being my first large furniture project ,I think the excitement went to my head as it was for my wife to put her collected plates in, but I forgot to measure the plates and they were to big, so I had to make a suitable Cabinet
to put things right, I don’t know if this is the correct place to put it.
The cabinet’s have been made from reclaimed Australian Eucalypt trees.

Now I’m beginning to wonder if it wasn’t in Workbench, which ceased publication several years ago and they never produced a CD/DVD containing back issues. I have a collection of those magazines too, but they are physical paper and I’ll have to see what’s in them. I did find this, which looks similar. Although it’s not on the cover Fine Wooding claims (nor do I think it’s in that actual issue listed in this article).

I wonder if it isn’t in American Woodworker then. That book is by American Woodworker… I’ll have to look through it again (I’m really NOT a fan of how they put their CD set together).

Thanks for the review’s by Fred Hargis and John M.Restaino, I know I am not in there league of knowledge ,and although I remember the difficulty’s I had when I built my Cabinets , my ability to have worked out the problems with the plans at the time , not that I thought there was any mistakes as I remember, just my inability to do good Cabinet work ,so I wont comment on the Lonnie Bird plan. thanks Wayne and ALASKAGUY .I will find Fred Hargis and see if he can remember where the plan come from .

Well the Quest is over, I took the advice to contact Fred Hargis, regarding the Magazine and he has Informed me it was the American Wood Worker in the 8/1998 issue no 67, with some very helpful suggestions , thank you all for your help, perhaps my memory is not as good as I thought, all though I was only about 8 years out, Not bad if your memory is shot, my next job is to find out how and where to put any photos I have of my wood working hobbies’.
