you’ve made very good use of proportion with the top to the bottom. The gradual change in drawer sizes is classic and smart furniture design. Did you do the drawer fronts and the door frames yourself?

Lobro4,
I made the drawer fronts and raised panel doors from the same board.
I needed 35 bd ft of Red oak for this cabinet and usually buy only what I need for a particular job but…
while sorting through the stack, I found several boards 4/4×14” x 12’ and ended up with 135 bd ft.
Some boards you just can’t pass up.
