This was my second project,... ever. I didn’t have much in the way of tools to build them but worst of all I didn’t know much about finishing at all. I didn’t have heat in my shop and it was in the middle of winter when I tried to stain these. It looks terrible. But hey, it was a good place to start.

Dustin, that’s very good for your second project. Nice job.

What type of wood was used on these cabinets?

Thanks everyone, I used Alder to build these. My shop is pretty small and I don’t have the equipment to do much other than cabinets.

Looking back at some of my first project I realize how far I’ve gone. It’s like night and day.
