Cabinet making - Feb and March
After our holidays last year we had to turn our attentions back to the house and again we're running out of space. So, 3 projects got started, the DVD case, and 2 computer desks.
The DVD case was made to sit on our sideboard in the stair alcove. This dictated the shape as we wanted to fit all our DVDs in it with room for more (although the to shelf has wine glasses).
Som bought me a router and I got a few cutters to fit it. I did the whole DVD case using the router, its a great tool and as this was solid oak it made it so much easier than by hand.
The lighting is done using white LEDs which I embedded within the wood so only the round end of the LED is showing. All wiring is in channels in the shelving which I then filled with an oak fillet that contained the wiring and LED.
The two computer desks (not taken a picture yet) were also oak but I also used oak faced MDF. Used the router on that as well.
