These cabinets were for a doctor’s office and while I realize they are melamine (shameless money making venture) and not REAL wood, I thought the design was kinda’ neat and I did use woodworking tools to make them!

same tools same technique. I give you two thumbs up. I did melamine organizers for all the closets in the house. Not the easiest to work with and not scratch. I used a lot of biscuits on my project.

Melamine is very tough to work with. The edges are a pain, the melamine rips off the substrate, you can’t sand or fill your mistakes, plus the edges get sharp and cut flesh if you’re not careful. So, very nice job. It looks very clean and waiting to be filled with “stuff”. (May George Carlin RIP)

Very nice work, and like others have said, that stuff is a pain in the behind. Wear your respirator!

I don’t think someone should ever apologize for their craftsmanship regardless of the material used. Good work.

Excellent work on those neat and well made cabinets. Great design for lots of storage and organization.
