             Here the boards have been planed, jointed and and glued up. You can see finger marks in the glue where I checked the boards were flush as I cramped them up.


This is some of the Cherry for the job.

                This project illustrated by another poor photograph of a drawing of half a cabinet on M.D.F. and an earlier version drawn on paper. It is a television and D.V.D. player cabinet made in English Cherry.

I’ve cut the bottom to size and routered in the housing joints for the sides and the back.

            Gluing on extra pieces of wood to widen the ends of the top rails.

Next I marked and cut out the dovetails in the top rails and the sides. I then used the router to remove the majority of the waste from the sockets finishing them off with a chisel.

          I then assembled the cabinet  in two stages (I forgot to take any pictures).

          When the glue had set and I could check the sizes I got out the material for the doors and jointed it up as in the  picture  on  the left. I then

machined in a ¼ inch wide groove to receive the panels. I cut the previously glued up panels to size and raised and fielded them on the spindle moulder (sorry no pictures again).

         Here is the finished cabinet being fitted to a very interesting wall. I’m partly having to scribe it to the wall and beams. As the beams  are so twisted I can’t get the top set back to the wall without cutting housings into them.

The finished and fitted cabinet with the doors closed.

With the doors open and folded back.
