Intro: Curved Cabinets Automotive Finish.
I made these cabinets for a woman living in downtown LA. She went to Barcelona and the gaudi house, and wanted a more modern look to cabinets in her studio the client loved the curves of gaudi design.
Photo #2 I marked the full profile of the cabinets on 1/2" plywood then cut out the template with a band saw, then used a belt sander so smooth out the rough edges, from this I could lay out the door profile.
I used 3/4" kerf board for the doors and clamp it to the form.
at first I used a vacuum press to the door but the trial door cupped even with little vacuum pressure.
Phono #3 So I went with clamps
photo #4 door fits form with no spring back and face of the door needs a very light sanding with 220grit sand paper.
photo #5 putting all the boxes together took a little time
photo #6 is a pdf drawing I gave to the client she picked drawing #2
Photo #7 the finished side, I put high gloss plastic laminate behind the cut out outs
