I built this simple cabinet, with fir wood and
6 mm multilayer of poplar for the panels of the doors.
For joints I tested the system Kreg, purchased from
few days. For the finish I used:
2 coats of walnut impregnating,
2 coats of pore filler,
2 coats of satin varnish
Everything has been applied with a brush.
Lacking the wooden plugs of the Kreg,
I thought to build. (Idea copied from YouTube)

The work is succeeded well, though it took me a lot of time.
To protect the cabinet from moisture, I put a sheet of polythene secured with double-sided tape.
