Nothing fancy in the cabinet work, but I did round the drawer fronts for a little added touch.

You can't tell by the pictures, but they are made the same way as a whiskey barrel (without the scorching and whiskey and the rings, etc,). I ripped 1" wide strips with a beveled edge to make the desired curve. Bisquits and glue hold it together. The hard part was clamping it while the glue dried, it kept trying to roll away. Screws from the back side hold the curved front to the drawer box. It took a little trial and error to get it all aligned. Hopefully I won't have to do it again, once was enough fun for me.

Here are a couple pictures of what I did. The interior cabinets still need doors and a drawer face for the short pull out drawer. I'll be putting in a fold down shelf to set my lap top on for watching movies. The area that the radio and speakers recess back in to is closed in on the bottom to form a wire run.

The following picture shows the galley. I included this so that you can see how the galley cabinets and drawers use the space left from the interior cabinets. I also like the roll out cooler drawer.

Some very impressive cabinets!

For those of you who want very light weight cabs., here is an option. Construct a frame using pine or spruce, glue on a veneer of 1/8" panelling using titebond or the equivelant, clamp with weight [I use concrete patio blocks] then rout out door openings. Faces have only one side veneered. Bottoms have both sides veneered.
Image
Face frame construction.

Image
Face frames and bases veneered and routed.

Image
Front and base installed.

The doors are 7/16" birch veeneer plywood with a poplar [aspen/cottonwood] core. They have a shallow rabbet routed around the inside edge. Installed with a 3/8" offset hinge. Very light weight.

This is the construction method I used for the walls of my Tear also, light weight framing and an 1/8" panel glued to the frame.

Regards, JG
