yep. 3 flipper doors, with slideout shelves for everything so i don't have
to move it to get to the cabling. actually, about 9 months ago i asked about
horizontal flipper door mechanisms, and this was the application and final
first time i used bloodwood. it has a very interesting smell that made me
hungry when i was milling it up.
it was also the first time i just started cutting parts without a plan, just
a few measurements for width of doors and depth. the only requirement from
swmbo was to not have glass doors so she didn't have to see the equipment.
my cats like to sleep on the open doors.
The notion of working from a rough sketch and a requirement adds a certain
thrill to the project. Krenov describes something similar (on his plane,
not mine ;-)) in one or two of his books. When you only have a limited
amount of a certain wood, and getting something from another plank would
make it look different, it either succeeds or fails.
Sort of the cabinetmaker's version of working without a net.
