These glass doors are designed to fit the Classic Storage Wall, but Beth choose to use this plan to make new "glass" kitchen cabinets with this plan. She used florescent lighting plates for just $8 each instead of glass for a beautiful translucent door. This plan works with the Classic Storage Wall Hutch, but you can modify it to fit your needs, as Beth did.

Instructions

Step 1

Back boards. Layout the boards that are 2 1/2″ wide as shown above. Square up your layout and make sure you are working on a clean level surface.

Step 2

Front Stiles. Attach the front stiles with glue, clamps and 5/8″ brad nails. Make sure you have added glue in the joint on the back trim too. Let dry according to glue directions.

Step 3

Front Rails. Measure and cut the front rails to fit the sides of the front. Dry fit. Then attach in the same method as you did the stiles from step 2.

Step 4

Acrylic. Your hardware store may be willing to cut your acrylic for you. If not, cut your acrylic with a fine toothed metal cutting blade. Using multisurface clear drying glue (Gorilla Glue is a good one) glue the acrylic in place. You may wish to paint or stain your frame before applying the acrylic.

the unknown yellow linen cabinet is of the hemnes collection from ikea. I was thinking of using that collection inleu of the farmhouse, but it seems I might just make the farmhouse now. thanks.

I'm looking to build a bookcase/cabinet with paneled glass doors. I would love it to look like the Faulkner Library cabinet from Crate and Barrel. Does anyone know how to make plans for this?

Thanks!

I know I must be crazy, but I can't find the plans for the Classic Storage Wall Hutch. Where are they?

To get to the Classic collection links, Click on Plan Catalog, and under "Find by Collection", there is a pull-down that will let you select the Classic Collection. This should bring up all the other classic collection pieces. :)
