Wall Cupboard Display

I have collected Wade figurines for 25 years.

It started innocently enough with the Rose Tea giveaways and now it has blossomed into a full blown obsession.

My collection had out grown its original antique medicine showcase so my darling, Mike, built a wall cupboard for me.

We designed it together and it turned out great.

 

 

 

The bits Mike used on the top and bottom were from Eagle America’s Price Cutter router bit line.

They were profiles P14-2911, P14-3107 & P14-3115.

I wanted a beaded board back for interest but we kept the stains light to highlight the figurines.

We added a cap at the top and bottom to soften the edges.

 

The clasp to hold the door tight are rare earth magnets embedded in the top of the door and the inside corner of the frame.

As you can see the new cupboard is full so I think he should get started on another one, don’t you?

Installing Cabinet Hardware Easily

My mom was refinishing her kitchen cabinets.  My sister and I thought it would look great if we added knobs and drawer pulls to her cabinets.  We decided to purchase and install them for her birthday.  Mom was excited about the idea and agreed with our choice of knobs and pulls.  So one weekend morning, my sister and I went out to my mom’s while she was at work and installed them. 

We used the Euro Handle-It Jig to install them.  What a great jig!  It was so easy we were done in about a half hour!  All we had to do is decide on a dimension for the knobs on the doors, hold the jig in place and drill.  You can flip the jig for left or right opening doors. 

Then we set up to do the drawer pulls.  That was just as simple.  We measured the drawer length, subtracted 3” for the drawer pull length and divided by two.  Set the jig, drilled the holes, and installed the pulls.  If you are in the market for a well made, easy to adjust jig for installing door and drawer pulls, I suggest the Euro Handle-It.  And it’s made in the USA!
