Bought some very pretty, circular cut roughsawn Pine and hated to plane off the velvety detailed surface. So, I used a Shaker cabinet design too create a very rustic piece that accepts the lack of cabinetry skills I have. Hand planed the bevel on the milled inset panel to add some contrast. The interior is also all planed for a finished look. Need to make more of this one..

Looks good to me. A set of those would look really nice in a cabin

I think you are selling yourself short on this piece. It looks great!

It was a first cabinet job and I can’t brag much on it – the roughsawn nature helps hide many flaws. The next one will be much better fitted together and honor the original Shaker design much more. Thanks for the encouragement!

The only thing I note looking dead at it I wouldn’t do is, you have a reveal at the bottom of the face frame on both sides. Then you flare the tops. I would get rid of the reveal, unless it extended top to bottom. Only part way it suggests it’s crooked. Beyond that rough sawn is a feature of a rustic piece. If you don’t want rustic, plane it smooth, at that time you want to closely match the stock so all the individual pieces flow. The casework itself is much better than most people see on a first piece. Considering the flare, much better than many see after quite a bit of work.
