Wrapping up the DETAILS

-

The doors are the last big parts needed to finish the case. They’re Baltic birch with the same edge treatment as the other parts.

To throw a whimsical wrench into the works, we added a pull support you see in the main drawing to the right. It’s simply a 1⁄2" plywood circle that’s been glued to the surface of the left door. (More on making the circle in a little while.)

The pull for the door is attached to the pull support with a screw. The head of the screw sits in the opening of the door that’s above the drawers.

As for that door, adding a giant notch that makes fun of finger pulls seemed to be appropriat­e. Making the notch starts with roughing out the opening (as you see in Figure 1 on the next page). I made a template and cleaned up the opening with my router and flushtrim bit. Now let’s look at making the circle I mentioned earlier.

CIRCLES

At the top of the next page there’s a box that shows a jig that I use with my router table. The jig makes perfect circles every time and has become a go-to fixture in my shop.
