Kitchen Cabinet

With the addition of so many new kitchen appliances the floor was no longer a nice place to store them, so a cabinet was commissioned.

Using 12mm "caravan ply" which appears to be form ply (hence the black back) with a stupidly thin hardwood veneer, a cabinet was made using dado joints and a ambitious mitered top. I'd never tried (with any success) a miter as long as this.

I found a pleasing filter for the camera and took some shots of the build.

 Cutting the dado's on the table saw.

 Assembling the cabinet on the back of the ute.

And the finished product post 3 coats wipe on polyurethane finish.

And a mighty tight miter! Great result.

Till next time.
