THE cabinet that Fred built. Notice the turnings. This cabinet is in three pieces. The turnings have been placed at the ends and the junctions of the pieces. They provide "pop" to the overall look of the cabinet. Without them the cabinet looks relatively "flat".
Here is the detail of the centre split turning. Actually two turnings as the top piece sits out further from the cabinet while the lower turning sits between the "frame" pieces and is itself framed. A lengthy project but fun to play with various designs before deciding on the final look and then being challenged to create duplicates.
