Making a ‘Mulberry’ Corner Cabinet – Part Four

I boarded the back of the upper tier this morning and attached the cornice to the front. The hot weather (27°C or 80°F) has already had an effect on the cross-grained mouldings which have begun to ‘crinkle’, creating small gaps. These splits will come and go with temperature and humidity – the trick is to seal and polish them in relatively high humidity so the gaps don’t fill with polish etc. How they subsequently fill with comparatively soft, coloured furniture wax is only something to look forward to!

The carcasses are now complete.

The transition break.

The cornice.

    Nice to see the detail in the raw. Is that a small chamfer on the upper Pine boards?
