Built-in Cabinet for Housewarming
« on: August 05, 2018, 12:42 PM »
Happy to share with you all my latest project that was a built-in for my daughter's new (old) house in Chicago.  We put it in an awkward space in order to cover up a utility chase.

She gave me a good idea of what she wanted
283095-1
so it was off to the races with translating that into a Sketchup model.
283097-2
I put it together in Atlanta, so had a chance to try out the DF-500 connectors to check the fit of everything, then disassembled it and drove it out to Chicago. All in all it went pretty well and she was very happy with the finished product.

Very nicely done.  Looks like a quality piece.

The pictures are right side up after opening them all the way.

Nice work and great fitting on the crown moulding.  The dark toned oak gives it a nice warm look.

Jeez - that crown almost got the best of me.  Like all old houses, nothing was square so those angles took some work.  Thanks to all for those good words about the project!
