The cabinet is all Pine with a coat of Bush oil. I really liked the design of this and made it to use in my workshop…but my wife may have other plans for it. I made the raised panel on the table saw and and used a beading tool on the shelf edges and trim. It was my first try at making a raised panel and although it came out ok, I think in the future I’ll spend the $$ on a router bit set or hand planes (thoughts?).

I sat in on tool show class with Garret Hack a few years ago and was blown away at how he made a simple beading tool out of an old saw blade and scrap lumber. I went the easy route and bought one instead and finally put it to use. It was the best part of the project for me and I plan on utilizing the little devil a lot more in the future.

Looks great. What are the dimensions? Is the panel a single width board?

Don’t you love it how the wives always have final say?

I like it. With some nice pine boards, as you have, I think pine makes a nice furniture wood. The pine should age beautifully. I do think some of those H style hinges would really set the cabinet off as a period piece. Hope your wife lets you keep it in the workshop. Very nice.

Great job. How is the back constructed – ship lap, tongue and groove?

I likes it. Very nice molding/s and beaded edges. Nicely done raised panel from your table saw. Did you set up a tall fence to make the cuts? Thnx. I haven’t tried this technique, yet, but, will one o these days.

Very nicely done, pine usually gets a bad rap, but this proves some of the beauty of it. My thought on your question, buy the router bits. I made a few raised panels on the TS years ago, then when I started my new kitchen cabinets, I bought. 5 piece door bit set from Freud, best money I ever spent. Trust me you won’t be sorry. Here is the set I bought. It’s a little over a year old and still sharp, I made 24 raised panel doors and drawers with it and I have 6 more to go, well worth it.

The panel is made up of 2 boards and the back is ship lap. Size wise it’s 37” tall by 23” wide.
I cut the panel with a jig that fits over my fence and although it gave me some control I still didn’t feel comfortable with it.
