    George’s 3 Favorite Woodworking Jigs for Cabinetmaking

    I’m looking for construction plans for an enclosed floor standing cabinet with sliding doors and butcher block top. Maybe drawers just below the top.

      Craig, I may have a Credenza plan that I drew up in SketchUp that may be able to be adapted to something you’re looking for. If you’d like to get in touch with me I can be reached at aaron_dean80@hotmail.com.

    I will be making an end cabinet in a kitchen. It must only be 18 inches wide at the standard depth. They also want the front angled but did not specify the angle. What angle will I need to make the face frame in order to have at least a 12 inch opening for a door? Is there a method or formula for figuring this out?Ticket 21077

      Dear Bruce,

      Thank you for your patience. In regards to your question-

      Your best bet for this would be to work in a modeling application such as Sketchup, as you can try different scenarios and come up with something that will work without wasting excessive time and wood.

      Sincerely,

      Paul

      Hi Joe. Do don’t have a complete dining room set, but here is a dining table: https://www.wwgoa.com/product/trestle-style-dining-table-plan/ I’ve found that it is easier to learn from the skills based content on WWGOA, and then create your own plans based on what you want to build. Once you’ve mastered the basic joinery options, you can build anything you can dream up. I usually take my wife to a furniture store, have her pick out what she wants (usually a combination of features from 2-3 different pieces), then I build it for her.

    I want to build a center cabinet for a walk in closet . I have white oak from a lumber mill and have planned and sanded it. But I have never tried to put boards together to make them wide enough . I would like to make 4 draws that I can slid out to put sweaters on and then a few shelfs and two doors. It would look something like what I have in my kitchen . I have done wood work but nothing like this project. I work best from plans with parts list.
    Thanks
    George
