Making a ‘Mulberry’ Corner Cabinet – Part Eight

I decided to tackle the shelves before hanging the doors, so I rubbed some pieces of 5/8″ thick pine together to create similar kite-shaped boards to the ones that were used for the cabinet’s end boards. The front edges of the shelves were shaped and then moulded.

The moulding profile is a flat ‘D’, not dissimilar to a bullnose moulding. The pine is too soft at this stage to use a scratch stock on, so I resorted to a spokeshave, rasp and chisel to create the moulding.

The shelf supports are also made from 5/8″ thick pine and have a simple 1/4 ” ogee moulding struck in their lower edge.

The supports were cut to length and nailed in place.
