Completely Transforming a Glass Cabinet with DIY Shutter Doors! 2021-10-10 10:00

Modern Makeovers
Louver doors with slats that pop out is something that I've wanted to attempt for a long time, but I just never found the perfect piece to try it on... until I ran across this. I found this top half of a china cabinet on the curb. Not only was it entirely solid wood, but it was also in amazing condition, so I knew it had big potential to be transformed into a high quality piece. Going into this project, I knew it wouldn't be easy; the markings and cuts would have to be precise in order for the slats to be spaced evenly across all three doors. It also turns out that cutting and sanding 135 slats with extreme care is quite time consuming (I think I spent 2 whole days just sanding all the edges). The chinoiserie leg design was also one that I had never built before, so that was a new challenge on its own. In the end, I'm very pleased with the outcome of this project, and with this video I hope to share some of that joy. - Andy ---------- Below is a list of some of the tools and products that I used.
