I built this cabinet out of walnut veneered MDF for storage in my dining room. I found this great off cut for the front drawer face and doors. I designed it to have a 1/4” X 1/4” reveal all around at the top and the bottom of the case to mirror each other and add symmetry.

Beautiful veneer. The view of the front is stunning.

You mentioned veneered MDF. Did you do this yourself? Is the inside veneered also?

Great job! Did you use a vacuum press?

Absolutely beautiful! You’d never guess that it was made from MDF – your veneering is beautiful.

Incredible grain pattern and nicely styled cabinet. What finish did you choose ?
