Italian Corner Cupboard

Morning SketchUp practice. Based on photos of a cupboard made in the early 20th Century.


As usual very good looking, DaveR. How is the drawer suspended? Looks as if it just pulls out loose between upper and lower faces, rather than on runners. Is that right?

Thanks, John.

Yes, I didn’t have any images showing the drawer removed so I can’t say for sure but I think the drawer is kind of free to roam a bit. there are guides on the sides so the drawer pushes in square but they don’t show here. I suppose you could put a central runner in there to guide the drawer.

I kind of like this piece but that drawer almost seems like a waste.

on one downstairs, a pair of draws are hinged as well…

there’s a piece of quadrant in one corner that conceals a pivot pin…
