Everything’s better with a face frame even the view from above

25 Mar

 I’ve gotten as far as the front face frame.  I still need to do a frame on the other three sides and then on to drawers and doors.  Click on picture to enlarge.

    Coming right along. I’m always impressed by the lighting in your shop area, must have a big windo?

      It has small windows up high. But it’s new construction so I have 3 rows of 5 foot fluorescents with 2 lights per row.

    It’s looking great Marilyn! :-) Have you thought about what color you will finish it with?

    Did you see the step stool I made my wife? Here is the link, http://michaelswoodcraft.wordpress.com/2014/03/30/walnut-step-stool-part-iv/

      The stool turned out really nice.

      Here’s what I’m thinking about finish. The cabinet is a mix of cherry veneered plywood and regular ol’ solid wood cherry. I’ve been eyeing some General Finishes Vintage Cherry dye. I’m thinkin’ I might wipe on some dye to even out the plywood and the solid wood and then finish with Profin. I’ll have to test it first .. to make sure.
