I used the Classic Icebox Hardware...

Clarence S from Bridgeton, NJ Posted April 7, 2010
I used the Classic Icebox Hardware Kit (98625) to make the panels for my Jenn-Air refrigerator. I removed the hardware protective finish with a wire brush and darkened the hardware using your brass darkening solution for an aged, distressed look. I put a stainless steel pin through the latch to make it solid. I now have an "old" icebox in my 200 year old farmhouse.

I made mine out of cherry...

I made mine out of cherry and finished it in tung oil. This plan is not for the beginner. I am a seasoned woodworker and I deviated from the plans in a couple of places. I used 1/2" solid cherry and 1/2 laped the joints for the panels and I did the face frame a little different. Over all the plans were good to get the dimensions from.

No matter how you slice it,...

CHARLES H from Ravenel, SC Posted July 5, 2011
No matter how you slice it, the overall width of the carcass is 40". The front apron would therefore need to be cut to 41 1/2" the long side of the miters not 44". I dry assembled the front frame sections, then placed the dry assembled doors in their respective places, then I traced the door top arches, removed the doors and dropped the arch lines 5/16' to allow for the overlapping rabbets on the doors. Also since #5 is taller than #6 make your arch on #6 first, then copy that arch to #5. The grid as shown for these items will only lead you to make extra kindling. I hope this helps. I suppose this is all part of the fun of doing something like this.
