These are my cabinets and the way that they are going to be laid out in my shop. They are all made out of 3/4” Red Oak Plywood. I got this stuff at Menards for aobut $48 a sheet. It is rated B2 and is really nice looking and stabel stuff. I have found very few voids in it. It sands real nice and finishes nice as well. I took the basic design from Norm on NYW cabinet series. I just modified them to fit me a little better. They are 29 1/4” tall for a finished height of around 30 1/4”. I am going to use 3/4” MDF and 1/4” Hardboard for countertops. I will then trim it out with some Red Oak. I have three double wide units with two two drawer units and two with three drawers. The face frames are made out of 3/4” solid Red Oak. Again I finished with Tung Oil. The doors and drawers are made out of 3/4” Red Oak like everything else and I used 1/4” MDF finished with poly for the panels. They were pretty quick to make. The baby drum that I have made quick qork out of the sanding for the drawers. The drawer boxes are made out of 1/2” BB ply. I got it from Menards in 4×8’ sheets. Good stuff to work with. The drawers are mounted on bottom 3/4 extension slides. They work pretty nice. Not bad for my first cabinets if I do say so myself. Enjoy.
