I had made a pine corner cupboard before this one and this one is the same except I added a door. Like the first one, I made this one with hand tools only. I like challenging myself to do this by hand.

I had some problems with getting the rails all the same width. I can do two of them without any problems. Doing 3 or more wasn’t working for me. So I made one set the same and made another set a bit bigger and adjusted the plan dimensions to fit it.

I could not not find a keeper for this door. The side rail and the door form a 45 degree angle and all the keepers I saw were 90 degree. I made this one out of oak and stained it with ebony dye.

The inside I finished with shellac and the outside with blue paint. I still haven’t done the rabbets on the door. I didn’t make them deep enough to account for the paint. I had to plane them again after I got done painting the door.

There is a really cool visual effect in the first picture. It looks like the cabinet is floating in thin air. Anyway maybe it’s just me.

Yep. Looks like it is floating. That is also a striking blue. Don’t know why but I like the color.

Very nice, well done. Great finish, and I like the door catch mechanism.

Sorry about the lateness of replying. I can’t access lumberjocks at work and when I get home, I plead CRS.
It was fun project and I think I’ll be making another one a bit bigger.
