I admit it; I'm a dinosaur. I still listen to CD's. I built a media cabinet with plenty of storage for CD's . . . or so I thought. I needed somewhere for overflow and so I adapted a piece that I generally offer as a bedroom or walk-in closet accessory. This one is scaled for three rows of CD's.
I have this material marked as sipo but, find it a challenge to differentiate it from sapele if the ribbon is well pronounced.
Both woods come is thick and wide pieces which I love as this let's me be really selective with the material I want for certain parts.
Here is a sled I made for my router table. This is used for non-edge cuts in larger pieces like these stopped dovetails.
The top and the bottom both have border-line art-deco stair-stepped profiles. I get these from the tablesaw and a jig.
This should be a familiar design element if you have seen any of my other builds ;-)
The cabinet is hefty and so I use metal reinforcement for the hangers; one on each side board.
The back is ship-lapped slats with a decorative bead.
Raised to fit in a groove around the sides and top they slide in from the bottom during assembly.
The glass panel door carries the G&G cloud-lift theme.
The green tape helps with marking the pull location.
Just some gratuitous progress shots.
I enjoy making my own pulls and trying to tailor them to the feel of the piece. This is sipo, brass and cocabola.
The door "latch" is a washer in the top of the door . . .
That aligns with a magnet in the underside of the cabinet top . . .
And here's some overall shots.
Thanks for looking.
