The Curio Cabinet
A true reflection of your fine craftsmanship
Here’s a project that makes a perfect “showplace” for your collections and other treasured items. It’s also
one that’s excellent for learning how to use a variety of your versatile MARK V accessories.
We chose walnut for our cabinet, but any hardwood will work quite nicely. Its doors, sides and upper & lower backs are frame-and-panel construction, made using Shopsmith’s Cabinet Set Shaper Cutters. The mirrored back and see-through glass shelves provide an excellent all-around view of the treasured items on display.
We started by cutting all the stiles (A,B,C) and rails (D,E,F,G) to size, as listed in the Bill of Materials. Go ahead and cut them to exact size now, as this will make it easier to clamp and glue them together later. Do be aware, however, that doing so means you’ll have to be careful when you mill them on the shaper, since you will have no margin for error.
While you’re cutting things out, make an extra 2-inch wide rail and stile to use as test pieces for setting-up your shaper cuts
