Big old cupboard thing

Post by jonnyd » Thu Aug 07, 2014 7:58 pm

A job just finished .

Start with 50m2 of quartered European oak from capital crispin.

Image

Joint it into large layons approx size 2.3 x 5m

Image

Construction is MFMDF carcases

Image

The sliding door in the above picture will slide into a pocket created by the carcases when finished.

Jump forward a bit about 50 samples of the white washed oak and lots of veneering later and it's finished .

Image
Image
Image
Image

The doors have a 30 degree angle cut onto the edge to allow the doors to open against the white lacquered frames.

Image

It's been a nice project and a nice challenge getting the detailing right from the architects blueprints. Biggest challenge was getting the grain flowing through from side to side and managing to veneer everything the right way up etc as one mistake would have ruined the whole front. There is also a nice forum connection as a friend who I have made through the forums recommended me to his friends for the job.

Thanks for looking

Cheers

Jon

That is one hell of a cracking job Jon. How did you veneer the MDF, it must have been too large for the bag press? Bet that took a lot of patients. :D

Wow, mate! Top job.

How did you shoot the veneers when you joined them together?

Hi guys the doors were bag pressed as the doors were made individually and the large layon cut up with a knife to get the layons for each door.

Veneers were shot with a veritas jack plane on a big shooting board jig.

Jonny,


That is just awesome, First class work!

I hope they are going to change that georgian glass door, and the placcy switches!

That is just my sort of thing, lovely jubbly!

Really nice Jon. Why make it up as a 2.5 x 5m veneer when there are 4 vertical breaks in the units?

Fantastic work! Does the 30 degree angle on the doors allow for a finger pull or are they push to open?

It would have been interesting to see a shot with a few doors open.

Excellent work and a brilliant result. It's a good job you have a big workshop. 2.5m x 5m jointed veneer :shock:

Nice job there mate, can ask if i may did you solid lip the edges or iron or use an edgebander after the face veneer and also what glue did you use for the bag pressing work ?

Yeah it was done like you said veneers laid up to the vertical breaks and then cut out then carry on with the next lot so was never actually a great big bit of veneer as it were

I will pass you notes on to the architect who hand sprayed the switches with Matt white paint to make them look like plastic :lol: the Georgian doors are going flat being replaced with solid lacquered Matt white ones I think.

Yes the 30 degree chamfer is the door pull. The 30 degree angle is only on the edges adjacent to the white squares

Jon

The edges were lipped with solid wood 7 mm thick for the regular sides and a wider 13mm strip for the edges with the handle. Mdf lipped first then edges flushed then veneered on top. Veneer glue was uf resin Borden ul39

Thanks

Jon

Architects... Matt white light switches, they won't look like they've been nailed to the wall in a Kwick Fit staff room inside 6 weeks will they? :roll:

Truly lovely work never the less, hand venereed things like that always grab me, it's a subtle way to show real quality!

That's come out very nicely Jon. Doing a job like that is always slightly worrying until it's completed, but when you've finished and the customer is happy it makes it all worthwhile - at least in my experience.
