    Corner cupboard progress--bottom doors

    My day job is pretty stressful and this project is how I relax. It is more of a journey than a destination. Sorry for the slow progress--it may take another year to finish. This weekend's task was to cut up the rails and stiles for the doors. I was able to get all pieces cut out of some...

    Corner Cupboard progress--door top rail

    This has been a good weekend for the corner cupboard. First I got the moulding applied the the foot build up. Next I installed the top door rail. This piece was an afterthought. The door frame just looked unfinished, so I added a rail. There is a rabbet on the back where it attaches to the top...

    Corner Cupboard Progress

    I love to see a project come together and thus had a great day in the shop! The wood was 5/4 rough NC walnut. After quite a bit of handplaning, I had enough pieces for a glue up. Here is the bottom of the cabinet. It needs glue blocks, stacked feet, moulding, and two paneled doors.

    Corner Cupboard

    When we got married,we thought we would find a nice antique cupboard for our china. With 5 $100 bills in hand, off we went to Metrolina Expo, only to be sorely dissapointed. With some discussion, the new Mrs. agreed to let me buy a table saw and try my best. As you can see, it was a big...

    Corner cupboard

    Well, I revisited my clients house to measure up for a handkerchief table and retook some photos of the corner cupboard I made her. Be kind, the pics still didn't turn out great but you will get the general idea. This shot shows the broken pediment and the rosettes I turned for it...

    Hanging a corner cupboard.....

    getting ready to start on a hanging corner cupboard out of mahogany and am curious as to how others mount these to the walls. I am thinking about incorporating dual French cleats into the design so that it will be anchored from both sides. If I do this, the cabinet cleats will have to be inset...
