Corner Door Cabinet

Submitted by searcyb on Sun, 03/10/2013 - 13:10

My wife came to me a couple of months ago and asked me to build a corner cabinet for our family room. She had found inspiration through a picture on pinterest that she "had to have." I found a couple of old doors through a resale shop near our house and this is what I was able to make with them.

This was a little tougher than I thought it would have been. I have done crown molding before, however, I have never done a floating crown (no support on the top). I was able to use my nail gun and get a solid fit on the bottom of the crown and then glued a support strip behind the crown.

The shelves are made out of 3/4" ply with a birch veneer facing. Surprisingly easy to use with just a little measuring and a hot iron set to the cotton setting.

Again, another project that would have been made infinitely harder without my kreg jig.

Let me know what you guys think!
