I made this one for my Mother-in-law in about a day. Had no cash at the time and didn’t have a gift for her so I used 2×4’s for the frames.

I like the rustic pine look myself. You did a good job on it. Something nice and sturdy like this would have cost a pretty penny at the Amish market.

I did this project about ten years ago but I think I remember using biscuits in the corners. I recall thinking they (the biscuits) were way too small compared to the 2X4. I might have switched to dowels. If I were building this today with what I know, I would use a stronger joint. Maybe a dado or a mortise and tenon.

Scott, a great looking cabinet, I love working with dimensional lumber for furniture. Hope you don’t mind if I borrow some of the idea.

Scott your cabinet turned out great.
I love using 2X4’s to learn with, that way you don’t have to hide your mistakes – you toss them on the burn pile and start again.
