I found a pix I liked out of a magazine and tried to make the cabinet. I see the flows in it and I’m hopping I can fix them with some advice for you guys. Thanks

Looks like it came out pretty good to me, I don’t see the flaws you mentioned. I’m curious about the design details though. Like the pull out shelf, most times this is full width, and the bottom drawer would fill the opening in width and height. These are not hard fast rules however, and each design is unique and a personal preference.

Thanks for the comments. Oldtool the top self will be full sized, but the piece I was using inside broke when I stepped on it so I used what I had I will change it out when I buy a new piece. I’m using it as a cup holder only. LOL the drawer at the bottom was going over the door and I ended up putting it at the bottom and it turned out to small. if I new how to fix it without making a new drawer i would of, but it is my first with no specs. I have made other things that turned out good I just did not post it. Thank you all.

On first projects sometimes it is best not to fix them. A year from now you can look back and see how you’ve improved. The fact that you did this by looking at a picture says you have a bright future.

Looks fine to me. I like the rustic design and the flaws just let everyone know it is hand made. I like the hardware you installed, it matches the cabinet.
