You are welcome. Wow TJ that is a triple Yes! I was gonna sugest some type of glass doors but you nailed that one. Now you need to make another cuz that one is getting full. Wink

 

just looks full.  the shelves are 16" so I can put more then one deep. I just took them all out and have quite a few pieces to put back together

TJ,

Outstanding job on the cabinet! As I was looking at your progression pictures I was thinking this cabinet would benefit from glass doors, and then there they are! Very impressive! 

This is exactly the type of cabinet I need to build for myself. Thanks for the inspiration!

Awesome design and work on the cabinet. Yes

You could custom build those for folks in their homes and make a living, I'd bet. If I had room to put anything, I think I'd be begging you to come on up and build me one! But alas.......

other then the fact that I was trying to go as cheap as possible. Working with the melamine was a little bit of a pain.  If I had been able to use real 3/4" plywood it would have been a lot easier to build but close to double the cost.  Building the cabinet is not that hard

yunno Greg I've always enjoyed woodworking and I have built some stuff for people but nothing this big. If my funds were greater i could have done a lot more with this
