    china cabinet

    Bought a house and had all our china sitting in boxes too long. I had to make something and found a pic on line of something that I liked. Had some figuring to do and drew up some plans and this is what turned out.

    Thanks Don & Ed, The wood is all oak with glass shelves to allow the Led lights in the top to shine through all shelves.

    Great looking china cabinet Andrew. I'm sure it adds a touch of class to the room. How many hours did you put in building it?

    Great job Andrew!

    Like Alex I'm also curious about the time it took you to make it.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    It took longer than I had wanted ( never heard that before) as I was building only from a picture. I was re-designing and building as I went. I also had to wait for Router bits from CMT and getting certain hardware from LV and even more time to get the glass and find the right lights. I would esimate that it took a good 35 hrs in building to get it to finished. If I had the time to work on it straight. The next one will be faster.
