What was I thinking!

A couple of years ago in a woodworking class at Santa Fe Community College I designed and started on a corner cabinet with curved doors. When I got to the point of installing the Brusso offset hinges I laid it aside. Now I am back on it and realize why I laid it aside. In order to get the doors installed properly the cabinet has to be dry assembled - no small task since it has dozens of dowels to line up!

As soon as the screws for the hinges arrive (tonight, maybe), I'll have to get it assembled and figure out how much to take off the doors so that they will meet correctly in the middle. I've tried to do this without screwing the hinges down, but that's not working too well.

This has been an excellent example of designing something that is nearly impossible to build!
