Spice Cabinet Doors

   I was asked to make some doors for a 6' tall bookcase so that it could be used as a cabinet in a kitchen for spices and other cooking accesories.  The bookcase had a nice decorative faceframe with an arch at the top of the opening.

   I made two panel doors using 3/4" poplar for the rails and stiles and 1/4" birch plywood for the panels.  I cut the top of the doors at the bandsaw to match the arched opening at the top of the bookcase.

   I attached the doors using barrel hinges which are completely recessed in both the doors and the face frame.  The doors open well beyond 90 degrees which provides easy access to the shelves inside (not shown).
