Little French armoire
Hello all. A quick post again on another kit I've designed. This one a French armoire with glass (acrylic) doors. It is not complete. I couldn't get the cutter to cut all the parts correctly, but the major parts worked fine. Another couple of small refinements to the drawings and finding the right wood and it's ready to go!
Here is a photo of the waste from learning how to cut, what materials, cutter speed, etc etc etc.
And here is a pic of the kit which has finally worked:
On the right side of the photo is a trumeau mirror in two sizes which still needs some tweaking. The smallest is too small and the larger is OK - a relatively large mirror - but the trim needs adjusting.
It's so satisfying to be making significant progress and learning so much from the cutting and designing process. Thanks too for the encouragement and tips from various blog readers. It's really appreciated. Enjoy your week!
