I plan too replace the lower doors with raised panel door soon! 6 coats of Danish oil and 2 coats of Fiddles & sons dark wax. The switch on the lower left side controls the light in the top section of the stand.

The shelves in the top part have wire installed in them for ventilation and to let the light shine through!

Since the stand cant be vert Deep (22 inches deep) I put in a pull out shelf to put your food on!

A lot of work but turned out nice. As you say replacing the plywood door panels will work much better. Can’t tell if the drawer fronts are tapered but if not are you sure that you would want raised panel doors on the bottom? Not finding any fault but it seems like the bottom should match the rest of the design to this Very Novice Woodworker. Maybe it makes no difference and even if it did if that is what you want then that is what to do.

Well the reason I used construction ply for the lower doors is that I need to save some money and get a raised panel router bit and some Shaker panel bits.

This was also my first solid wood panel glue up. I made some mistakes

I might also add I AM NOT A ELECTRICIAN! And some how got ahold of a three way switch and played hell figuring out what I was doing wrong.

That is funny!! three way switches can drive a lot of people up a wall. I have found one simple rule I follow for 3/ways.

Each switch has a black or common screw on it. Usually it is the one that is alone on the side of the switch. One of the black (common) screws takes power from the panel. The other connects to the power to the fixture. The other two are only travelers. If you hook the travelers up first then the rest is rather simple. I’m sure there are other ways also as we have a lot of electricians on this site.
