The carcass is 1/2” baltic birch plywood with an oak face frame. Shelves are scrap pieces of poplar. The door is a simple panel in a frame. Exterior is finished with mahogany stain and 4 coats of Arm-R-Seal gloss. I tried shellack, but couldn’t get it to dry without clumping, definitely need more practice. Interior is just white latex paint.

Looks good. Next step is to cut out the drywall and mount it flush into the wall between two studs.

-- "Fine Woodworking" is the name given to a project that takes 3 times longer than normal to finish because you used hand tools instead of power tools. ----Mike, Waukesha, WI

My wife didn’t want me cutting into the wall, the old one was mounted like that and she didn’t like it. I hate working in drywall anyway
