Thanks for the responses.

The thru tenon for the shelf is something that I think isn’t going to make the final cut. I liked the idea of it but the comment about visible joinery for parts you can’t see makes sense. Would you guys suggest just going with a stopped dado for the shelf?

My main problem with the first door design is that I feel that the outer stiles are too thick. I am also concerned that unless I use very small pulls the two narrow center stiles might looked discontinuous. I may need to just make the cabinet a bit wider so that the proportions for the stiles work better. I like like the way the doors came out, but see your point about them not really working with the case.

What would you guys think about going with straight outer stiles and having the center stiles expansed in the center with more of a tsuba like design? I think I might try making the cloud lift pattern on the rails a bit more abrupt, smaller radius transitions to keep it from looking so much like a large curve.

I might not be explaining that very well, I don’t have a seat of the program used for this model here at home but I might use sketchup for a few quick door ideas, that seems to be what needs the most work.

Thanks again for the critiques and suggestions. Lee, I really appreciate someone who is able to explain what they don’t think works with a design.

Cheers,
