Has anyone ever seen plans in the magazine for a China Cabinet/Breakfront? I want to build one since I figure it would be cheaper than store bought and I like the thought of customizing its size and features for my space.
If you have reasonable woodworking skills and equipment, you can go "shopping" for the piece you want and make your own plans from what you see. I personally have never found one piece that really suits my needs, I usually take cues from several pieces, incorporate them all into one design and build that. I've duplicated many pieces this way.
If you MUST have plans, then you'll have to find some, but you can still incorporate different design characteristics into them.
