I built these cabnets for a customer to flank the left and right side of his brick fireplace.

The boxes are 3/4 red oak plywood as the face frames are 3/4 red oak I bought from the mill in the rough. the style is a nice clean Shaker doors with a small twist. instead of the conventional cabinet door router bits I did a mortice and tenon for the rails and stiles, a 1/4 grove to receive the panels and I chamfered the edges passing through the front of the joints on the rails and stiles. The tops are solid oak ,edge glued.

note these were build outside on my deck before I began construction on the new shop, I think this was about the point I decided to build the new shop.

Additionally I posted some pics of the shop . . .Please take a look and offer up any helpful suggestions that might come to mind.

Hope you like them and thanks for looking.

Very well done. I can’t imagine working outside like that. Just spoiled I guess
