My Son called me the week before Christmas and said he wanted to make his wife a Bookcase with doors for Christmas to store her cookbooks in the kitchen nook. I said OK but we probably want make it by Christmas but after 10 days and 40 hours of work we completed the bookcase before New Year! I let him build it and I only provided the plans, material and know how. It was a good teaching experience for me and outstanding bonding time for both of us and I think I passed a little woodworking knowledge on to him.

That turned out real nice!
I like the “close up” of your finishing process!

Great looking cabinet, working with your son and passing on your experience, priceless.. Those long doors look great, they have given me heck, several times in past. Thanks for sharing.
