Here’s my first furniture build finished! It’s been in progress for over 6 months, held up by me having to set up my shop and acquire all the tools I needed, and also learning a lot of things and getting very distracted along the way!
Made of red oak, using hand tools, my 14” band saw, circular saw, and drill press I cut the raised panels with a smoothing plane and a rabbet plane, the molding with molding planes, and dovetails by a saw and a chisel. The fixed shelf not visible in the pictures) is joined with a sliding dovetail to keep the sides from bowing, since it’s such a tall cabinet.
