Gents, here is my latest project I have been working on. Never expected for it to be this big. I’m going to have to build a shelf or book case of some sort for all my models. Anyways, this model was made out of mostly cherry, walnut and oak for the details. If I would have to say the only hard part about this build was trying to figure out how to make the kerfs for the doors. I just simply used 2 sided tape and made a jig.

Here are the links to my blog build.

Yae Ja’... Ace job. You certainly have given the humble hummer full justice.

Those inside shots are brilliant… just a shame it’s hard to see the full detail as could be seen in the blogs without the roof.

You’ve certainly nailed the kerfs… and the wood combo pops.

Yep, ya gotta turn it into a pheasant (not peasant)... under glass! Unless you do, in the future you’ll find it’ll be harder to dust than the original build… and if you attempt to dust you’ll rebuild many times… because of all the broken pieces.

-- If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Ducky, I agree with you there. I’m working on plans to build a cabinet like yours. I can’t decide how big I want to make it. lol

Did I by any chance give you my SU model of my cabinet? As I have SU models of all the models I’ve built (or plan to build), I imported them into the “cabinet SU” and used them to calculate shelf spacing. Width was an issue… I picked 1m as that let me put 2 smaller models on 1 shelf or 1 large one. Any wider would be a pain to manipulate while building (rotating for sanding)... Height is determined by average viewer stature so I wouldn’t go higher than 5’. Depth was based on 300mm slides so the shelves can be pulled out for viewing and saves on glass sides (and maybe back). For the odd shapes you might need to stand alone.
You also need to decide which or how many you want to keep. If I built all the models I have plans for, I would need another 7 cabinets… and a bigger house.

Fantastic job, love that detail. If you don’t already have one, you need a book in your future, I’d buy it. You have done all the hard design work I assume so all I would have to do is copy the parts.

Cheers Jason
