My favorite and most frequent customer (my wife) requested cabinets and shelves to surround the french doors in the den. She wanted to paint them so they are made out of several different types of wood. Birch plywood, framed with cherry (I have lots of cherry laying around from finding 500 board feet from an auction…cheap), and red oak for the doors. I know I could have spent far less since the wood was going to be painted, but, oh well.
There is no base in the either cabinet due to my wife wanting to conceal the computer, printer,etc. to keep it hidden but accessable when needed. That equipment is on a rolling cart which easily rolls inside. She also wanted the option to use the cabinets as a desk if needed, so that a chair would easily roll under the top. The flipper doors on the cabinets have the accuride 123 glides. The glides were fairly easy to install once I put my mind to just do it. For the finish on the top of the cabinets, my wife used a glaze with various colors to give it a little different look. The shelves are adjustable and as you can see, already filled.
