It looks a lot nicer than using the rotary cut ply. What is the substrate of the plywood? Looks very nice.

The plywood is veneer core. I think the MDF core is a few cents less than the VC. The plainsawn is nice especially if you are using red oak. The back face is rotary sawn though. Doesn’t make any difference if you use maple and I think the cherry and walnut are usually PS There’s less choice when you look at cherry and walnut – at least that the way it is with my supplier. This was my first case with panel construction. I made up two sample cabinets with doors and all – one with a face frame and one just panels. I show them both to clients and they can choose. Used pocket holes, screws and PL adhesive for assembly. Edge banded with the iron on product. Wide molding covers the pocket holes on the bottom. Top doesn’t matter and if you add crown to the top that looks nice as well. This client likes to put her knick nacks up there.

Looks nice. How would you go about adding crown to a framless euro cabinet like that? The full overlay style leaves nothing over the door to nail into.

You would need to add a nailer to the top and usually a facia to the nailer flush with the face of the doors and then nail the crown to the facia.
