After all the red oak kitchens I had built for customers I was running outta places to put the left over material. I decided to make a model cabinet/countertop so when i meet with a potential customer i can explain and point out the details of my work, and they can see what there getting.

Hey Ronnie

Good idea man, if someone can look at, touch, feel, and inspect your work they are much more likely to buy it. Cabinet looks great, quality build great joinery

Nice job Ronnie.

I did much the same when I was building cabinets. It will pay off dividends for you many times over. I would suggest something for you to consider, based upon what I did. When you accumulate more scrap, build a similar cabinet as a drawer bank. I found that when I showed the client the dovetailing and quality of the drawer glides, I really had their attention.

Again, very nice work and best of luck.
