This is a cabinet I just made as a birthday present for my granddaughter’s “American Girl” dolls. Copied the design from a similar piece the doll company was selling on-line (for $300!). Used Pine material since I was a little behind schedule and ended up buying some pre-made panels at the local lumber yard for the top and other wide pieces, which I will never do again. Did save time but not confident that the panels will remain “true” over time. Rabbet joinery. Water-based stain trying to closely match her bedroom furniture, with a satin poly finish. Cabinet is roughly 30” tall x 28” wide x 14” deep.
