    Little glass cabinet

    As part of the furnishing I am making for the church they need a cabinet to display 3 glass bottle that will contain Oil that is used for anointing for Baptisms, confirmation anointing of the sick. This is what I have so far. It is Made of 5 panels the three on the front are 7"x20",6"x20" and 7" x 20". The 2 side panels are 8x20. Tomarrow I'll take the panel down to a local glass shop to have the glass cut for them and a shelf that will go inside. The cabinet is called an Ambry if anyone cares.

    Interesting! Are any of the panels going to be hinged? I never would have guessed the name for that type of cabinet in a million years.

    Don, I am always interested and very happy to watch the work you are doing, especially the church furniture. Don't stop posting it. To the name, would never have known it, probably won't remember it, but can see what its use is. I was surprised to hear you say only one panel hinges. I would have guessed each panel opens so the correct bottle could be taken out without moving the other bottle. A style, either behind the panel or between the panels would allow all three to independently open. Magnetic latch? Lighted?

    Hi Don,

    Looks nice so far. Couple of questions.

    How did you make the arches?

    Did you use m&t, dowels, biscuits, or pocket screws to attached the rails and stiles?

    What wood is that?

    Regards,
    Bill Antonacchio

    Beautiful job Don. You need to write a book on building church furniture, you seem to be the expert in the field. Are you building the furniture from standard dimensions or does the church provide the specs? Just curious.
