Thanks guys and they are my first full set. i have done some re-facing, but these are the first. they are walnut with inset doors. the “shelves” are actually 2 levels in a barn tackroom. i will post picture of upper level soon. i made all the tops out of 1 1/2 solid walnut.

Those cabinets are in a barn? Way too nice, must be a really nice barn!

You’re a brave man to use walnut to make your first cabinets. That’s a lot of nice, expensive wood to screw up! Good thing you came through!
