@nbtrue asked for some details on how to build some guitar cabinets. I thought as long as I’m digging the information up I may as well post it for everyone’s benefit. The Cabinets are made from Tasmanian Oak which isn’t a true Oak. It’s an Australian hardwood that’s easy to come by, relatively cheap and is often used for furniture. It’s a lot harder than cheap pine. They were finished with several coats shellac and a coat of wax although you could use anything. Inside the cabinets I have very black ‘carded’ velvet ie. velvet that has been glued to mat board. The mat board is the same stuff artists use for borders around their paintings. Pictures follow: Checking the sizing of the cabinet on a bit of black car carpet. You can see the slot I've routed for the back panel at the bottom of the cabinet carcass. Pile of Tassie Oak for eight cabinets. Just ignore the CO2 cylinder for the beer fridge - the bike tyre is hanging on my beer taps Checking the back panel fits properly. Plopped a low profile "String Swing" into the shot just to give an idea of how the cabinet will work. Two 'french cleats' to hang the cabinet on the wall. It's a bit hard to see but each cleat angles back at 45 degrees. Maybe the shadow on the right hand cleat gives some idea of the hidden 45 degree rake on the wood. When it comes to hanging the cabinet you place an opposing piece of 45 degree timber on the wall and the two 45 degree surfaces lock together. The cabinet will sit flush to the wall and you won't see how it is hung. There are two cleats because that gives me a choice of which direction the door will open when it comes time to hang the cabinet. Test fit of the clear acrylic door - it's white because I haven't peeled of the protective film yet. I'm using Hettich overlay hinges - I'll show some pics of them next time. A pic showing shellac finish on one of the cabinets. Haven’t put cabinet makers wax on it yet though. Some (pink) 1.5 x 1 metre Mat board for attaching the velvet to using spray contact adhesive. This is the same stuff that picture framers use and is essentially uncorrugated 2mm cardboard with a textured face. It is 2mm thick. It's pink because it was half price and you can't see the colour through the fabric -so the colour doesn't matter. A pic showing the velvet glued to the mat board. Cut-outs in the mat board for the hinges - the shape was a bit tricky - you have to use a stanley knife to cut mat board - it's too thick for scissors. Sticking the carded velvet to the cabinet using double sided tape. Velvet lining installed - ready to mount the door Finished display case - ready for mounting on the wall Pics of the finished cabinets.
