Well after almost cutting my finger off with a zero clearance dado blade insert installation, and then getting the flu for a week after that, it’s finally finished.

Just need to haul it out and install it.

Thanks for looking.

UPDATE: It took an entire day to install this piece. The home has very wide oak trim that was installed my a master with a nail gun. Fun times folks. Had to remove two pieces of 1×6 oak and take it back to the shop and grind those thousands of nails off, then putty up the new nails. Good thing I have one of those woodcraft wax filler kits with all the colors.

I used oak stops along the sides but the molding still looks a bit wierd at the corners. I’m not a finish carpenter.

Nice looking piece. I hope you are not implying that cutting one’s finger on an inset installation, followed by a week of flu, are key ingredients toward a successful project outcome. I love to work the wood, but not that much! :)

Are the sides/back solid wood or ply? Thanks for your post.

The back sides and floor are 5/8 pine ply. I thought I’d never get rid of that sheet of plywood, now I can use a shelf that was behind it. The frame is WRC.
