This was my largest project to date. It took longer than I thought, but I still consider myself a beginner. I’m not sure if I’ll ever get past that. LOL The carcass (including the back) is 3/4” oak plywood, the drawer boxes are 1/2” Baltic birch, the top, face frame, drawer/door rails, stiles and panels are all solid oak. No stain was used just 7 coats of gloss polyurethane with lots of sanding. It was for a friend and he is a novice woodworker (even more than myself). He put in many hours with me to ‘learn the trade’. The blind leading the blind I told him. In the end his wife loved it, and we all know when Mama is happy….....

Thanks for looking,

Excellent work, very nice!

I had one on the list for so long that my wife finally got one at Costco. I don’t feel too bad, it’s at least solid wood and veneers on plywood. But still…

Yep that list….LOL Then you have to live with what she bought…until?

project is pretty sweet for two blind guys! LOL!

Tips from my mentor about custom building….If you venture into raised solid wood panels make sure your panels stay proud of the door. Says custom made.
The other thing to consider is over the top handles and hardware to set it off.
