About This Project


I wanted to make a China Cabinet and I couldn't find a plan for one on Ana's so I used the Ayla Cabinet plan and I just made it bigger. This cabinet is 46 inches wide x 17 1/2 inches deep x 64 inches tall. I also added 4 glass doors and one large drawer in the middle. I added the bottom shelf and baskets because I felt the cabinet legs would be more secure with this option. The reason there are 4 cabinet drawers is because I added a middle shelf and a center support. I did not take into consideration the doors being inset when I added the middle support so I had to make 4 doors so that they would be inset. I also added crown molding to the top of the project. I'm not sure you can see but I also carved a Fleur de lis and scrolls onto the drawer.
This took me about 2 weeks to complete....and a lot of tears but it is complete and I am very pleased.

This is incredible. Where did you get those spindle legs?

I got them at home depot. they are stair spindles, very cheap 5.00 each. I cut each one at a pleasing location on the spindle and the length I wanted then I used a double ended screw and screwed them into the leg and to the cabinet, I also used glue to make sure they were secure. I decided the legs were not safe without the bottom shelf because this piece is so large and heavy, so this is the reason there is a bottom shelf.
