This is my first foray into a furniture type project. I made this microwave cart for my mother. I used pocket screws for case construction, and made top with MDF and tiled it with some left over tiles from a kitchen remodel. it is made from poplar, stained and then finished with poly. I then put casters under it for easy moveability. I did make several mistakes making it but learned a lot in the process. forgive the picture quality and angles, I am not a photographer.

Great job! Not bad at all being your first time making those nice doors. No way I could have done that my first time…...
