Built a dress-up armoire for my daughters. SWMBO requested a cabinet for a specific corner in the girls play room. I took this opportunity to build it completely with hand tools. Raised panels, T&G beaded back panel, dovetailed case, and hand cut dados. No electrons were spared this time. I chose clear pine to make my life easier, but with all the effort, I really wish I went with cherry or walnut.
Finished with milk paint and polycrylic.
This build took much longer than usual, but it has been well received and I had a blast building it.
Comments and critizims are always welcome.

Pretty awesome and all by hand. An heirloom for sure! Hope they enjoy it for many, many years !!
