Just a basic small cabinet made to match some existing ones for a friends remodel project. 3/4” plywood with poplar face frame. The big take away from this project for me was to make the face frame larger than the carcase and then flush trim to fit. I designed my first face frame to the exact dimensions and it didn’t quite fit LOL, lesson learned. Going to be painted which is nice in this case since there are several patches due to mistakes or voids in the plywood. This was a nice learning experience, nothing fancy but this had to appear as if a professional made it at least as well as the other units. I’m still just a hack so more learning, getting better, hopefully becoming a better woodworker.

Nice job.
I seem to learn something from every thing I build.
