    Display Cabinet, Oak n Glass

    Well i have been on this in the design stages and customer conversation stage since before October of last year so if you want to figure time on this dont just look at it as a piece to get some spare lumber into a different location and shape.. its a G&G style sorta and made to fit a certain space so the proportions maybe off but this what she has decided on..the cutlist says around 45 bf of material figuring solid wood on the whole thing. i got some extra so i can pick threw the bad stuff
    the sketchup file and the first shot of the material and helper.. My other bud Tom said he wanted pics

    a fair price for decades worth of experience not to mention real wood, craftsmanship, patience, and talent.

    well i am not hurrying this and got some time in on it the last few days, done some collaborating on procedures with my go to guy Glenn, sometimes us ole gesure's need verification on our thoughts
    so to start this off i made some note of part sizes
    and printed of my sketch up file for some refernce.

    then i took and rough cut some parts, which takes longer than some might think when you are looking to grain match,,

    i also cut out the parts for the top panel and glued it up and sanded it flat. that is what is showed under the parts. i took and clamped it flat to keep it that way..
    after you sand out a panel, you run the chance to have it move from the stress inside that is now closer to the surface..better to allow for it than hope the best..

    after a quick question to glenn, i went with my thoughts on the top frame construction. i took and made sure that each piece was cut the same to help in the squareness.
    that helped the final outcome and never forget to use enough clamps

    after that was under control, it was time to layout the parts to see where i was going to be on the door construction,,
    had some changes and scrap parts are easier to use than the real ones

    Looking forward for more. I like how you practice out your thoughts on scraps.
