When our second child came along, I had to give up my office for her bedroom. We had a nice unused nook in the master bedroom which I built these cabinets and the mahogany counter top for. The cabinets are pre-finished birch with painted poplar face frames. I am particularly proud of how the decorative end-panels came out on the base cabinets, although in retrospect I wouldn’t miter them with the face frame in the future on paint-grade cabinets. A simple butt joint is easier to make, just as strong, and nearly invisible when painted. I didn’t do my planer any favors running 12” of counter top through it either.
