Next part of making the curve brace of my custom cabinets is after I have just started my curve from the 45s I cut earlier. But first in making this brace for my custom cabinets the smaller sample that I talked about from before I have to use to draw on my router so I know where to make my cut on it so it adds to my router section of my brace. When making the 45 angles on the lower side of my router I want to go ahead and get it as close to my curve that I drew as possible. I see here that I have extra room because I drew the 45 first so I am going to go ahead and extend it to a 55 degree angle to give me less work later on. I pretty much want to get as much wood off as I can without interfering with the curve itself. Now if I hold the two pieces up I can start to see how it gets rounded off which makes the back of the custom cabinets look smooth. Next I am going to cut two more 45s on the top of my inside curve on both ends. The next thing I am going to do is attach my face frame of my custom cabinets to the router or middle piece of my curve. What I have to do now is join the inside curve with the router of the curve. The way I am going to join them together is I am going to find the center of the area in which they attach and mark it with a pencil and then I am going to drill some pilot holes all the way through. I am going to do this about every three or four inches all the way down. Then after I go the one way with it I am going to counter sink the holes. I make sure to use my stop collar so I don’t go to deep. Up at the top I make two holes back to back. Now I am ready to attach the two parts to the back of my custom cabinets together. When I attach it I first glue it then I come back around to screw it in. Before I glue it though I first screw one all the way threw so I have a way to line up both pieces. Now the reason why I put two screws in at the top right next to each other is because the bottom screw is going to screw into the inside curve and the other one is going to screw into the back of the custom cabinets. Any extra wood that comes off the top you can sand down later make sure to give myself extra wood on the inside curve part because it is easier to sand down that side rather than the router side. For these special custom cabinets staggering them was a bliss way of transforming the design of this kitchen. When we first got to this kitchen we had to gut out the old cabinet because the house got flooded. This whole house was a remodel. We had to transport all of the old material away first and quickly. If you leave material with water damage inside the home it can be deadly at a later time. A cabinet maker wouldn't want to work inside and environment either without a mask to protect himself from harmful particles in the air.
