Just finished these cabinets for a friend. He wanted to keep cost at a minimum. So these were made from #2 pine for the face frame and Only one good side for the 3/4" birch plywood used for the carcass. Same for the 1/4" plywood used for the flat pannel doors. However I was able to talk him into useing Clear pine for door construction. This was an interesting project to work on.When $$ is hard to find for material,yet having good enough material to get good results. Sorry about the bad picture angles,the room is so narrow its hard to get a good shot.
