Another step to eliminating store bought laminate furniture from my home…
Top is bread box with full width door that drops down. left side is storage with two adjustable shelves inside.
Right side has tater/onion bins in top drawer, bottom is regular storage… used full extension drawer slides.
Bottom drawer is storage.
Oak plywood for most of cabinet case. Oak face frame, used pocket holes for that. Purchased the punched tin. Used a lot of wormy red oak for top, doors face frame.
Finished with gel stain and shellac.
Probably will not use gel stain again… trouble getting the color even.

Thanks for looking- Ken

Good move ! Way nicer than commercial product ! And healthier for you too (without tons of glue and God knows what else . . .).
