Oak plywood with solid wood banding on the top. I used poplar for the frames of my doors. Euro hinges inside with shelf pins.
Thanks for looking.

A very nice piece, I really like the combination of the painted wood with the natural oak. Those are some nice miters on the top… Wonderful work.

Glen, It will be used in my “office” (AKA bedroom) to house miscellaneous office supplies, computer, printers, and a lot of other stuff. I’ve been putting this project off for a long time and finally did it! It was a big project for me.

Nice piece, how long did it take to make?

Thanks a lot, Jim.
Yes, plywood saves a lot of glue-ups, and is perfect for tops and other applications.
Hardwoods are hard to come by where I live. Lots of pine trees, but no small mills with hardwoods, so I use a lot of plywood where I can.

Because I have a tiny shop, it takes me longer than it would for those with more room. I probably had a good (3) weeks on this. The finish alone took a week, because of slower drying times in the cooler temps.
Next time I’ll spray lacquer and have it done in one day. I used Waterlox on the top and kickboard, which is a very durable finish, but it takes longer to dry.
