    One of my old customers ask me if i would be interested in making them some wardrobes for there old 16 century farm house with crocked ceilings and floors.
    So I was up for the challenge
    I made them using mrmdf.
    The carcasses was made from 18mm screwed and biscuit jointed.
    The shaker style doors were made from 12 and 6 mm mdf.glued and pinned
    All the hinges were Blum soft closing and handles were to suit existing furniture.
    All the mdf was primed and then sprayed with four coats,using johnstone's acrylic eggshell.
    This was the job i was working on when my wife was taken ill.so i just did bits and pieces to finish
    the customer were absolutely brilliant.
