My neighbor commissioned me to build her this photo cabinet for her framed photography. Each door was built using a tongue and grove router bit set and all the joints are dados/rabbits. Should have bought a biscuit jointer….
The strips were made of masonite and wedged into saw kerfs. The trim is all pine from home depot, selectively cut to be “clear”.

The sides are all 3/4” oak plywood.

It was finished with a thinned down spar urethane as it is going to be semi outside in a garage with no door I wanted it to be tough and water resistant.

Very nice.

Sharp. I really like the contrast between the rails and stiles and the panels. I just bought a biscuit joiner last night for a frame project even though I swore I would never need one. Funny thing is I really enjoyed using it and I am now trying to figure out how to incorporate it into future projects. Keep up the good work!
