Here is a china cabinet I built for my sister during midwinter break last year. It is made with birch plywood and poplar trim. This picture was taken before my sister picked out the knobs and handles.

This is a really nice piece of furniture. Birch and poplar can be a challenge to stain and, so often, as a result woodworkers opt to simply paint them. But you did a good job on the stain and finish. The breakfront design and the moldings give the piece visual interest.

Well done. I am sure that your sister enjoys the piece.

Thanks for the post.

Thanks for the comments, My brother-in-law designed a website for a molding company and he got all the molding from them.
