I like the natural finish goes with the work center. Also nice how you concealed the pull out tray for cutting or hot items, that will get used. Hope you had some sketches I am sure you will get requests for some details.

NO No plans. I just went and did it.I fully intend to put raised panels in the lower doors but still have NOT got around to it. Its all number 2 Construction PINE! The fit on the 3 small drawers on the right was such thatI had to drill holes in tieback to let out the air. Should of in some whistles or noise makers or something in them… There is an LED light in the top of the top part with a switch on the left I think you can see not on in this pic. ALSO my ceiling are 12 feet high. Top half comes off to move it. I got it all together inside and its 8 feet tall. I bet its wont even fit in a regular ceiling height! ALSO if I was going to do it all over again I would have put in a fully extendable 100 pound drawer slides for the Slide out cutting board cause it tends to drop the way it is

ALSO I think there are over $200 in hints and pulls on this. I might just start to make my own. Or maybe some just plain metal ones and soak them in merits acid for awhile. I might add that this one almost killed me. In a rush and disregarding safety one of the doors with he WIRE in it just was too snug. I took it off and set up my table saw real quick with on feather boards or anything. The table saw blade wondered into the stile then got ahold of that WIRE and shot the entire door within inch of my head. It made a 4 inch hole in my garage door! I got by near miss! never did that again!

lovely,

#2 pine makes a good cabinet wood and you have done a wonderful job with it. You be careful with that saw. You don’t want to ruin a perfectly good cabinet maker.

-- nice recovery, They should pay extra for that mistake, Eric E.
