I like the contrast in light & dark colors it brings more attention to them. Great job!

I used veneer hard board sheet,i don’t know what you call it there.Rabbet and dados are used for shelves.Butt joints are used for drawers,I know they are weak and not up to the mark :/ We don’t have joinery Router bits here.Handles/door pulls are made out of popular wood.

I hate when people build SHOP furniture that looks BETTER than my BEDROOM furniture :-)

Nice job, Gul, and …. welcome to the LumberJocks !

I love how the Internet has brought us closer together … with woodworkers who live … in my case … 7,400 miles away :-)

Very nice work Gul. Your cabinets turned our great.

You can never have enough clamps, and as far as I am concerned, you can never have enough storage for tools. I have found that if you build additional storage, you will buy or build new tools to occupy the new storage. (Hey, what a great reason to add more storage… :-)

Hang in there regarding dust collection….. Even if you use dust collection devices, it is still tough to control the dust…..

Beauty Cabinets! What type of wood did you band the panels with?

Dust happens. I rely totally on my shop vac. It takes a little time switching as I go from machine to machine but even if I don’t, gravity, brush and broom always work. So, far at least.

Nice job!!!! Maybe you need to “slide down the slippery slope” of using had tools instead of electric?
If you join this site,below, you will find alot of information about and using hand tools.
And of course you should be able to watch videos of Roy Underhill using hand tools here (site below), most all of his videos are available full length here.
