This unit was my first cabinet I ever made with solid wood of any kind. As is obvious, it was made with oak. As it progressed, it seemed to be looking O.K., so I saved the raised panel door challenge for another day. This one does not have the raised panel doors, but it does sit in my living room and stores many books. This was also the first time I made any drawers before, so it was quite a learning curve for me. The edge on the top of this project was also very challenging as I do not have a shaper. The router bit I purchased cost $75.00 and when it arrived at my home, it was clear that it was not designed for my router table. I was able to make it work after scratching my head for about an hour and a half, but I thought I’d made a $75.00 mistake! I was also shocked at how much this project weighed when I transferred it from my shop into my house.
