I made a start on my next job today a corner cabinet in pine. Glad to say the customer is going to put a finish on it so it's just a build on this. I started by cutting up two sheets of laminated pine and cutting the angles on them. I then put the slots in for the shelves and the sides with the Domino.

It took a bit of head scratching on how to orient the Domino to get the joints in line?? I had made a rod of the base with all of the angles and joints marked on it to avoid any mistakes. It all worked well and everything fitted together nicely.

I then had to alter the angle of the Domino to join the front edge pieces at 22.5. I used some of the offcuts to make sure they were correct before committing to the cut. I left these in a glue up tonight but shan't get back to this until Friday as I am on another job tomorrow.

Those 22.5° angles take some thought, eh, Alan.

Yes James, they are a head scratcher. These corner cabinets have to be so precise with all the angles. I do like a challenge though so am enjoying the build.
My other job was postponed today so I got back on with this job. After cutting out the top bottom and shelves I assembled it.

Then I got the bottom section part assembled.

I will be on the other job tomorrow so this will continue next week.

Really nice job Alan. Did I understand you correctly that this is one day's work? I would still be at the drawing board. Hope you post pics of the finished project.

Had to visit a customer this morning so didn't get into the shop until late morning but I did manage to get the bottom section finished.

I shall start on the doors next but my glass has arrived for the display cabinet so I shall be getting that fitted first.

Sounds like you are getting quite busy, and deservedly so.

I have used Domino's Bill. I did also have to insert some screws in to pull the sections up tight. I got the doors fitted today and a final sanding. Next I have the cornice and plinth to fit, I have to pick these up from the customer this week.


I also got these three doors made for another cabinet for the same client.

Next up is a boiler cabinet and a pine door and frame. :)
