First attempt at woodworking after a LONG break. Tons of mistakes and lessons learned including: build then mount. I spent way too much time and effort moving these things around. And they are heavy! Use a base: originally i put them on adjustable legs ( I think you can see them in one of the pictures) and I realized that they were no way sturdy enough. HVLP spraying: harder than I thought and red was not a good choice. Very hard to get it even. Rail and Stile: first time I’ve ever tried using this bit set but I think the doors make the cabinets. Glue up: no matter how hard I tried squaring things up was tough! Finally, really should have built a cross cut sled and an outfeed table before tackling this. Would have made things easier.
Thanks for looking

I think that looks killer DK. Very well done. Lots of storage there. You have all kinds of things hanging from your ceiling????

I think they look great. Actually like the color and from the pictures, they could be put INSIDE anyones home and look just as great. Nice Job

Well done, I would add stiffners to the shelfs to keep from sagging in the future. I learned the hard way is all. Nice color as well should serve you well.
