    maple armoire

    i built this last week. first time i have every tried doors like this. the client wanted something that looked like an antique. and since i couldn't do the complicated curved crown top he wanted, i wanted the doors to make a statement. hopefully he likes it, i deliver today. he is going to paint it

    soft maple with 3/4 ply for shelves. feet were purchased from van dykes, hinges are 270 degree to allow doors to fold flat. i actually need to add 2
    more.

    Chris, that looks great!

    I'm sure he will be pleased with it

    I can't get past the first sentence in Chris' original post.

    Agreed.

    Really nice work and I don't think I've seen a rail and stile treatment like that before. Love it.
