Default Few more raised panels doors & a drawer

Adding cabinets to the workbench. Using scraps & small boards that were left over from when I built the bench. Lots of ripping strips & small boards & gluing.
Getting better. these 3, after wood was glu'd, planed & cut to size, only took 30 minutes of router time. Drawer frame done, but raised panel still in clamps.
Not glued together yet.
Had an "Inspector" on this job.

I like the pattern. What type of wood are you using?

Hi Dave,

Very interesting pattern. It almost looks like hickory to me. They are beautiful, great work.

Really nice bogydave. I love to mix woods and I think one of my flower boxes will be build that way. Now for a question ,do you dry your own wood or have to go to a store for it?

Lookin good so far Dave. Ain't it nice to have scraps around that match the bench?
Did the inspector give you the "paw" seal of approval?

In woodworking there is no scrap, only firewood.

Hey Doc.
Yeh, they match so hopefully it looks good when finished with the same urethane mix. Couldn't get myself to quite make the leftover small pieces from the workbench into firewood.
Inspector not quite sure, waiting to see it finished. likes chasing the saw dust into the floor vac chute when I sweep up. Stares & barks at it in amazement. He likes the warmer weather though.

Wood: Same as the workbench, Hard maple & wild cherry from WV.
Shipped it to Alaska 14 years ago, from Dad's (past away) saw mill the we cut together about 16 years ago.

Durability? Hopefully the glue joints hold, they have on the workbench. "Titebond I" glue on the doors & frame though, (different than the workbench) supposed to be tougher than the wood.

Life isn't right, wrong or fair. Life just is.

Nice! Those are bow ties locking the joints right?

Short story my 1st attempt at doors, I refaced the vanity in our bath, I figured the mat too tight, didn't have the biscuit jointer yet, so thinking myself clever I made splines out of mahogany the only mat I had laying around. When I cut the profile the splines were visible, hung the doors and lived with it.
Yrs. later wifey has friend over, sees vanity, asks where bought and can I make some for them.

Got them urethaned & hung.

Doc, you right, they match the bench pretty dm good.
Just takes allot of glue when using scraps.
2 drawers to go on the left side. 1 drawer front done.

Don't know much about all the hinge choices. Used this type, routed back side in flush so there is less gap when the door is closed.
Don't know if I had to , they were called "flush mount". (blurry close up pic)

Are there better hinge types to use for this application?

HI Dave

They look just fine to me..

" Are there better hinge types to use for this application? "

I would say yes,,, the pocket type below are very easy to put in place,plus you can adjust them in the XYZ ,that can be a pain with the type of hinge you are using you can find them on eBay for the right price, the ones below cost me 34 cents each, when you buy them in the bulk...
Once you put a pair in it wil be the only hinge you will want to use but I will say the non-mortise type of hinge is a good one also..if you want to have the butt (barrel) showing...
I will say I will buy old garage sale cabinets just for the hinges ,remove the hinges and trash can the rest of the cabinet,many of the old cabinets have them in place,it's easy math, 15.oo to 20.oo dollars per.door 2 or more doors and you just paid for the old cabinet the norm.. not to say anything about the other hardware on the cabinet

Jig
You can make one or buy a jig to put them in place with your plunge router, many shy away from the pocket type hinge because it cost so much for the tools to put them in place...but it can be done cheap, they don't need to be the high ends hinges that cost 12.oo dollars a pair..as you can see..
