Traditional American Cupboard

Here is a nice plan for another cupboard. This one is an updated design of another traditional piece of furniture that remains popular. The plan follows traditional cupboard lines and features top scroll work and raised panels. The hardware selected is distinctive but not overpowering (Lee Valley in Canada will help you out here, with a nice selection of hardware). The mahogany used in the construction, makes it a stand out piece. The cupboard is designed for relatively basic construction using standard power tools.

This nice plan was first published in "Mechanix Illustrated". This copy from a reprint in "Popular Science Do It Yourself Yearbook 1984"

So I will be absent for a while. Check back in May for more hobby workshop plans, projects, books and information articles and maybe even the occasional smile.

Pine Hutch/Cupboard

So for the woodworker here is a nice hutch/cupboard in a well balanced mix of styles. At 4' X 6' it is larger than it looks, a consequence of the clean lines and nicely proportioned design.The material is glued up pine, making it within the reach of most skill levels, but this is a project all skill levels would be proud off.

The project was originally published in "The Woodworker's Journal", this reprint came from the 1989 "Popular Science Do It Yourself Supplement"

As usual these plans are user friendly so click to expand for best view.
