Project - To construct a small table to fit into the corner of the entrance hall. This unit features solid oak legs with a stopped ovolo moulding on the outside corners, and oak-veneered MDF for the top, sides and the drawer. As the walls made an obtuse angle, I made a cardboard pattern to match it. The top was formed to the exact shape in the workshop and the carcass built to within that shape, so when the table was delivered it fitted snugly to the wall.
Project - To construct a good-sized shoe cupboard to hold the family's footwear. Again, it's a combination of solid oak and oak veneered boards. The legs are tapered to match the legs on a unit against the opposite wall. There's a round-bottomed groove routed out of the face of the doors. This actually exposes the MDF core of the veneered board, but after applying a clear varnish, it blends in pretty well.
