I have a new shop and although I’ve played around with small projects held together with drywall screws and home improvement for years, this is my first real sizable woodworking project.
Measures about eight feet tall by seven wide. It’s painted which hides a multitude of sins, and made mostly of mdf. The box was built several years ago as open shelving in our home office. My wife has been on me for ages to build doors to hide the clutter and I finally go around to it.
I used pocket hole joinery for the face frame (first time for that) which I was very pleased with, and this is my first shot at frame and panel doors. I was very pleased that they all turned out flat and square (even if the box isn’t quite) and the joints all fit together quite nicely. My wife did the custom paint job, it is her office after all.
I wish now that I had used a wider top rail and heavier moulding to balance out the piece. It’s very large and appears a little whimpy on top. But over all I’m very happy with it and I learned a LOT building it.
