Chinese New Year Part 3

January 6th, 2010

By now you should have your Chinese tea room coming together very nicely. If you missed last week’s installment and haven’t got your shelves ready yet you can find out how to make them here.  If you are ready to make your cupboard, let’s get started!

chinese-larder-cupboardYou’ll need

Jelly/Larder cupboard – 5710

Cornice, Mitred, 6 pieces, 450mm – 7017

Timber Lengths, 3mm x 19mm x 610mm, 6 pieces - 5993

Wood Glue, 80g  9216

Black paint or thick black permanent marker maker pen

Small saw

Tape measure

Sand paper

  1. The first thing to do is take off the overhang on the cupboard, simply saw it off.
  2. Take a plank from the timber lengths and measure four peices at 105mm each.
  3. Glue two to the top and two to the bottom, ensuring that the over hang is equal on both sides.
  4. Leave to dry.
  5. While you wait, cut twelve pieces of cornice 40mm long.
  6. Now on each ‘corner’ of the cupboard, ‘wrap’ the cornice round and glue in place.  See our helpful diagram and check the finished picture to see how the cornice should be placed.
  7. Once the glue has dried, sand down the cupboard and either paint it black or use the speedy black marker if you want it to dry quicker!

That’s it for this week, but next week will be the final part, how to turn your dolly into a picture of Chinese elegance.
