Never got to show the full finish pics of these,first time building "vaulted" cabinets as well as doing the stain and finish. Key thing to remember when doing anything out of the norm is stick to the basics and carry that thru the obstacle,meaning dont over think it or try some wacky shit as far as layout goes just stick to the principles of what in this case is cabinetry and work around that obstacle, being the vault ceiling. And as promised I'll have some how to videos posted to igtv on the secret compartment builds, some basics on staining and finishing as well as cabinetry basics.

How to find a large arch without a trammel. I dont do this that often because a trammel not only finds the arch but allows you to cut it perfectly. For this jig i kept my right leg tight to the points and left leg parallel with the bottom of the board. When you scribe just keep pressure towards you so the jig stays tight to the screws you set on your points. Hopefully this helps and I will post pics of the finish product along with some vids I recorded on free handing the cut, the install etc. . Gimme some feedback and Remember to save it for future reference if it helped!! Stay tuned for more finish carpentry tips and pointers!!!

Grain matching isnt so much for visual but for easing pre assembly or just joinery in genral. Once its stained or painted its barely visible but Its good to make it a habit since there can be thickness variations even tho the profiles are identical so its good practice to keep miters back to back. So make it a habit and occasionally if a miter is just not lining up, it might not be your fault. Have a post down on my feed on how i assemble these easily if you are interested.

First time coping an Architrave Door Header since doors are too close. Last post no. 1 question asked was why not just 45 it? Because i gang cut all my copes in less than an hour and after thats done all i got is straight cuts which speeds up production. Because a cope has a 3 degree range each way in any interior corner, so it means a corner can be 87 or 93 degrees and a 45 cope fits. Because even if the piece is bit long it will still fit and dig tighter into the piece instead of digging into the drywall like a miter does. Because you can snap fit scarf joints,try and do that with a miter. Because over time a cope digs onto the butt end and a miter digs into the drywall. Because walls and ceilings are always ass and a cope doesnt care. No matter how you put it coping is and always will be quicker and overall a better product. Id keep going but i maxed out the characters. Ill have a follow up post on what this was for and solutions for doors that are way to close to each other.
