I had to bang out a few quick projects before I went under the knife for rotator cuff surgery. We have a little place in the Pocono Mtns. in Pa. and the bathroom sink rusted out and took out the vanity, too. Knocked this out in a weekend. Ain’t pocketholes grand????
I turned the spindle on my lathe, split it with the bandsaw, flattened the back on the jointer, and glued and tacked it to the face frame. I was originally going to use face frame overlay hinges and changed to inset a the last minute. Didn’t leave enough room on the inside of the frames for the hinge mounts, but I made a few hinge mods and it seems to have worked out.
Red oak plywood and solid stock. Varathane traditional cherry stain and Minwax semi-gloss poly.

Nice work. The spindle is a great touch.

That’s a pretty spectacular weekend project. I hope your rotator cuff recovery is comparatively as speedy!

I hoped your rotary cuff surgery went ok. You did a awsome job on that cabinet, when you recover, keep sending those projects.
