    On the cabinet from ….Hades

    Actually, I’m starting to see some light at the end of the tunnel.
    I installed the back panel today along with a piece of ½” birch ply (yeah, I think I got enough screws in it. That piece of ply ain’t going nowhere!)

    I hope you can get a good feel for the grain pattern, I think it is going to be impressive once I get the finish on it.
    All I have left is the shelves, ¼ rounds for the glass, and the 5 drawers……

    The drawers are intimidating me a lot. I have never made drawers that didn’t have a false front - a false front can compensate for a lot. I will be using my Omnijig (which I love) but getting a perfect fit into each drawer cavity is scary to say the least. Any tips you all can provide will be greatly appreciated!
    As I said in an earlier post, I’m working towards doing the finish work this winter when I can control the temperature in the shop.
    LOML is after me to do the kitchen next……..

    Bruce,

    That's one beautiful cabinet.

    But, please be advised that, "In the interest of saving energy, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned out, until further notice".

    Wow Bruce, that is going to be super!

    Leave your drawers a bit too bit and sand, or handplane them down to fit...

    Make sure you have extra stock on hand so you can make a "Practice" drawer

    I'm sure you will figure it out!

    Great looking cabinet! What will it be used for. You have really done a nice job on it and I'm sure the drawers will come out fine! You might want to do a dry run with some cheap pine first though!

    Lookin' Mi"T"fine, Bruce, and I'm sure that since you got those doors fitted so nicely, you'll get the drawers to fit right too.

    Bruce, the cabinet looks great.

    From the pics you can see the beauty of the wood, the grain, rays and flecks.

    I can only imagine how much better it looks in person.

    How is this cabinet going to be used?
