Made this for my wife in January she had to wait on it for around two years. The top part is a little out of proportion. one of them measure once cut three time deals. This was my first raise panel doors, I thank they turned out ok . first time to make the molding at the top with the table saw, I think it turned out ok also.
Bought me a pocket hole jig, first time there also. a lot of first times on this project. has three coats of polyurethane high gloss sprayed on , I really like the shine. Teresa loves it and that all that matters to me.
Not very good pictures
hope yall enjoy looking

A nice Armoire. The cedar looks great.

Good job – I really like the finish on it to and your raised panel doors look great. I also like that big roomy shop you have – bet you get a lot of use out of that wood burning stove.

Hi Griff,

This is a really nice piece. Your molding looks good. For a lot of “first times” in this project it came very well. Did you seal the inside of the armoire as well or did you leave it unfinished?

Thanks for the post.

Bradford,Sorry I took no pictures while building.

Scott, I lightly sprayed the top of the inside. You can still smell the cedar some. The drawers were left undone in the inside.

Thanks for the comments.
