« Part 3: Internal Shelf, Divider and Glue Up Part 4 of Curved Front End Table series Part 5: Maple Back and Curved Cherry Top »

In this video, I cut the curved door panels to size using the bending form I used to create them. Then I cut the veneer for the edge banding, and install it on the doors to give the illusion that they are a solid bent panel. Then install the hinges and hang them.

After the doors are hung, I can start working on the curved drawer front. I cut the face of the curve on a large blank and them create the half blind dovetails for the sides. I then veneer the face of the drawer front so that the grain flows though the doors in to the drawer, then finish making the drawer

As always, I welcome your questions and comments!

The great progress continues and I am thoroughly enjoying it. And learning a lot as well. I should be starting my Bowfront Buffet Cabinet (to go with the dining room table posted a week or so ago) in the next week or two. For sure I will be using some of your techniques. Thanks for sharing.
