This project took five weeks from start to completion on 2-2-10. Sides and upper and lower sections are oak plywood. Face frames and door frames are solid oak. Finish is cherry stain and three coats of satin poly.
Construction notes: Upper cabinet back is 3/4” plywood. I ripped 5 1/2” pieces and chamfered the edges of each piece to give the v-groove look. The pieces are joined together via splining. Door and face frames use pocket-hole joinery, with plugs. Shelves are plywood with hardwood edging.
The design and proportions are my own, using pictures of other LJ projects as my guide. Total cost of materials around $450, approximately 40 labor hours.
While nailing the crown molding, I took a hit to the thumb with a 1 1/4” 18 ga. brad. After a short recess to get a tetnus shot, I was back in the shop!
Thanks for looking.
