Kevin helps Patrick build a trophy cabinet. Mitre 10 has cut the Pacific maple
to size and this timber will match Patrick’s existing chest of drawers.
Starting with the doors Kevin and Patrick mark out where the screws will go,
keeping them 10mm in from the edge of timber. Select a drill size that allows
the screws to slip neatly through the holes. Then select a drill that matches
the plug size so they fit tightly in the holes.
Mark your drill with a piece of
masking tape so you don’t drill too deeply. When you screw the doorframes
together use a clamp.
The rebate joints for the ends are 19mm. Screw in a white melamine backing on
the frame and hang the doors. Kevin fits the shelves and uses attractive brass
shelf pins. Cut a compound mitre for each end.
Using penetrol wood oil gives the cabinet a great finish. Gently screwing the
Perspex to the doors is the final touch.
