A little exercise in captive panel construction. I needed a little more storage space off the floor for my kitchen and I wanted it to match the exsisting cabinetry as best as I could. It’s red oak with birch panels (I was not going to pay for bookmatched oak plywood…) and finished with General Finishes semi-gloss oil and polyurethane finish. Actually came out closer than I expected color-wise. I used a Kreg mini that I borrowed from a buddy for all the joinery; those things are amazing I might add. Best part of this project was I smoked my old POS Craftsman router and had to jump up to a Porter Cable 890. I shed many tears I can assure you.

Very nice cabinet, and excellent match to the existing cabinets. Great build.
