First Lumberjocks post, what a cool resource.
This is the sketchup rendering for my current job. It’s a niche cabinet, which will be sitting (unfortunately) about 2” away from a prehung door with casing. The door and casing are stained and overglazed quite dark, and they’re made of douglas fir. I’ve spec’d douglas fir 3/4” plywood and 4/4 3” stock for the job.
The rails and stiles will be overlapping the outside of the wall, as the niche was drywalled and textured less than perfect. The base trim will be cut during the install to nicely overlap as well. There’s pre-existing 2” white MDF baseboard in this room, I believe I’ll terminate it directly into the returns on the base board.
I’m tempted to use another material, as I’ll need a quantity of four 4×8 sheets of 3/4” douglas fir A1 plywood to pull this off. At $125 a sheet, I’m wondering since it’s such a dark stain, if I could get away with a cheaper material. Any ideas are are appreciated.
