Building a Curved Cabinet
Well as I'm sometimes known to do. I decided to change the look of the top somewhat. It did require
chiseling the veneer off of the carefully cut border area, but I think it will be worth the extra time and
effort. So I decided to complete the doors first, just so I can get a feel of the cabinet itself, regarding
overall appearance. With that in mind, I started making the curved door forms.
The first step in making the curved doors is to create a pattern. Since the curved shelves fit
perfectly, I used them and a scribe, since the doors needed to be slightly larger. I used double stick tape so I
could cut the top and bottom pieces together, on the band saw. While still stuck together, I sanded them to my
line on the disc sander.
I left the back corner square to make it easies to work. I also added a frame to assist in keeping
it square, as well as make cutting the angles on the edge easier.
