Finally the cabinets for my wife's sewing studio are completed. She and
I spent the week painting the upper shelves, doors, and backs and today
we attached all of that. I'm glad to be done with my part.
Next and last step will be to have my glass guy install the glass.
Her majesty dreaming of filling it up.
LOL, thank you ED.
Maybe you would want to show her the matching pieces.
We added matching knobs to this today also.
And I just remembered I have to add lighting over the long arm.. ;~(
Thank you Sonny! Her quilting friends are customers. ;~) There is a
method to my madness. LOL
The color is "Minted" by Sherwin Williams. We are pretty happy with
the color too, it seems to glow with natural lighting and reflects light
well too. The three pieces in all brighten the room.
Thank you! Don't look too close. The heat and humidity on this third
project did not allow us to paint as smoothly nor were the results as good
as the first two. We did not use fans to combat the heat when we painted
in the winter and the paint set up much faster this time because of all of
the air movement. . But it looks fine.
I was thinking that I was running out of house too. :-). I think I can
squeeze in 4 or so more relative large pieces.
How do I say this Leon?
Your sewing room cabinets look nicer than a lot of folk's china cabinets.
How are you going to top this sort of thing when called upon to make
something REALLY nice? The design-build problems you must have! ;-)
Good work there Leon. Try to not make the rest of us look like a bunch of
ham fisted cave men in the shop.
Thank you Lee. To answer your question, I'm hoping that the next
project will not have paint. ;~)
Nonsense, I am in a constant state of practice and get lucky a lot!
Having said that I have developed a way of building cabinets, and a big
thanks to Swingman for steering me in the right direction about 10 years
ago, that seems to work well, the front "and" back face frame method.
In the last 3 1/2 years I have built 37 cabinets/pieces of furniture
using this design principal. It tends to be a very solid way to
construct, solves certain issues, and lends itself to adding decorative
I pride myself in the fact that the carcasses and face frames have no
nails or screws. Dado's, grooves, rabbets, floating tenons and
mortises, and glue are what hold it all together.
Then the nasty part of adding screws for door hinges, drawer slides,
pulls, moldings, and back panels take their toll. ;~(

Some of my nasty "parts" consist of manipulating enough clamps around a structure, within the alloted glue-set time. Seems, baton twirling skills would help, in the handling of pipe clamps, at times.
