Kufenschrank, or footed cabon

Here is my interpretation of a 14c footed armoire or cabon. The door still needs a final fitting in the opening before the hinges can be mounted. It is just sitting on its feet, yet is surprisingly stable

Here is another view. It nearly reaches to the ceiling of the shop

More cabon

Added top piece which is a brace but also a rod mount

Hello. Some small progress made today on the cabon. I found the mirror that goes inside the door and made and mounted the brackets that will hold it in place. The mirror will have to be removed for storage as its thickness was not accounted for when designing the case. As such the brackets are not as wide as the mirror so that they will fit in between the side panels when it is folded up.

And this is my first post from my phone!
