« Part 8: Poly on 3 base units in 110 temps in AZ Part 9 of 3 pc.bookcase cabinet series series Part 10: Cabinets and more learning...Yikes »

Hey Feeling real good today. One upper unit here on top of countertop piece and on top of base. Top is 30 wide by 48 high. base is 32 wide by 30 high. So in my shed shop are the next pieces already stained and poly coated. and shelves ready to cut to size and allow for the shelf clips. So we will assemble those one by one. 2 upper shelf units. I have made one face frame and checked it to the base unit for it..base units marked A B C. Units B and C are just a little off from A but this is my largest cabinet project ever so I am pleased. In the big picture are two raised panel doors for each unit that are overlay doors. That is one easier step instead of inset doors. I did raised panet before on the table saw with a tilt blade and fence guide. This time a door rail stile set for the router and a raised panel bit for router table. Yup there will be a few practice cuts and scrap to do. The stain is Early American from Valspar on Poplar. And yes I did stain the interior a lighter color than the exterior for a reason. Thanks. Hal
