Louis XVI glass cabinet



 This is a pattern for a sumptuous glass cabinet in Louis XVI style. It has been entirely reconstructed in the computer after a very old Hobbies pattern published in England around 100 years ago. The original pattern was quite obscure and difficult to read, with all the pieces packed in two A2 sheets, with many overlapping pieces and lots of confussing indications. It is now presented like any other scroll saw pattern in this site, clear and strightforward to follow, to be built with tabs and slots. However its proportions and the difficulties involved in its construction go beyond the ones in a standard scroll saw project.

This project will test the skills of any scroller to the limit and will be a challenge even for the most experienced ones. The pattern is printed in A1 sheets, with very large pieces that can't be cut with a standard 18 inches scroll saw. You will need a much larger scroll saw or you will have to split some pieces in several to cut them separately and then put them together. Doing this is difficult and recommended only to very experienced crafters. The model may require reinforcements depending on how heavy is the wood you use. If properly completed and finished the model will be a valuable piece of furniture.

 The pattern is printed to make the glass cabinet with 1/2, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 inches wood or with 12, 6, 3 and 1.5 mm. wood, but of course it can be resized at will. This table gives the measures of the glass cabinet depending on the wood thickness you use, including the suggested legs of 25 cm (10 inches):

  Height Width Depth
 1/2, 1/4,  1/8 and 1/16  in. wood 54.4 in. 35.2 in. 16.7 in.
12, 6, 3 and 1.5 mm. wood 130.6 cm. 84.5 cm. 40 cm.
