I built these to cover the CCT Panel in my new shop. Trying to keep with the theme I have started with, they are made out of fir hardwood for the frame and hardwood for the panels (to match my router table)
This was a nice easy project that only took a couple of days over the weekend to complete. They are held closed by rare earth magnets located on the top inside of the doors

This is a nice way to dress up your shop. It looks far better than simply leaving the panel exposed.

Funny you mention that, I was going to put either whiteboard material or magnetic painted inserts in that so I could put project plans and shopping lists on them, but decided just to keep with the theme of my shop with the fir frame and hardboard inserts…

I’ve been meaning to do this to my main panel in my pantry. After seeing yours, I may need to move this project up on the list!
