434 Wall hung display cabinet in sycamore by John Elbert

433 Wall cupboards and shelving

434 Wall hung display cabinet in sycamore by John Elbert bookcase on similar lines. Acceptable dimensions could be 81/2 in (21.5 cm) deep and 20 in (51 cm) high for the bookshelves, and 14V2 in (37 cm) deep, 15 in (38 cm) high and 32 in (81 cm) wide for the cabinets. Larger sizes are possible providing the fixings are adequate. Construction of the small cabinets shown can be with any orthodox jointing method, mitre dovetails, through dovetails, etc. or tongued as shown in 433:4, while fall flaps can be hung on pivots (433:5), or merely pivoted through the sides with brass screws and sockets (433:6). Figure 435 shows a method of wall mounting in which the cabinet is hung from a bevelled rail securely plugged and screwed to the wall, with a corresponding bevelled rail attached to the back of the cabinet that hooks over it. This top hanging method will support considerable weights, but if there is any tendency for the carcass bottom to sag it should be stiffened with an inner rail, or an under batten should be screwed to the wall. Small cabinets can also be made with glass mirror plates. The slotted variety are easier to attach as the wall screws can be aligned and driven home, and the carcass with its plates dropped in position.
