This is a set of library cabinets that I built for a customer in a basement that I was remodeling. Nothing fancy. I used all southern yellow pine and finished it with a dark waterbased stain and three coats of poly. Sprayed all the finish on with my HVLP and it turned out great. I also built a bar cabinet in the same basement that was featured in an earlier post of mine. Ended up being about 55 linear feet of cabinetry. Took me about 2 months to do the whole thing by myself. Used the Kreg jig to do the face install on all the cabinets. Love my Kreg jig.
