I agree Glenn. As for the hinges, they are Salice 1/2" overlay face frame hinges with a 2 screw plate. The curved cabinet was only 7/16" thick so I drilled new holes in the plate so the screws were centered.
I own a chess board made by Drueke (a nationally known GR based gameboard company). It's solid wood, about 3/4" thick, and all the grain is face grain running all the same direction. It's made of walnut and aspen. I've had it for 20 years with not an inkling of a hairline...
Thanks! This was made for no profit for a special customer. I was hoping the color variation wasn't gonna be so pronounced, and in a perfect world I would have selected cherry that had uniform color for the doors and drawer fronts.
These were made for a boat. The stain match isn't perfect, unfortunately. I really wanted to redo the color, but the customer didn't care, and he was completely satisfied. But the perfectionist in me is cringing. :)
Hey all, it's been a while. I recently completed a really fun project. This cherry vanity tries to use every last inch of space under the sink, and I think it came out pretty well. (I didn't choose the hardware. )
No, I don't think it was ever a functioning fireplace. I believe they just built it on a regular wall. It's not designed to sit on, but the installation brackets could actually hold the wait. I have a feeling their 4 year old son might not be able to resist turning it into a perch. :D
So after building a kitchen for this customer they wanted me to do some more work: a faux mantle in cherry. Because of its length I made it in 3 pieces.
The 6" drop front is mitered to the top. That turned out to be a little tricky. The jig I made to keep it square to the top didn't work...
