Cabinets and face frames
My cabinet boxes are a true 3/4 birch ply wood with a tongue and groove assembly system. I'm adding face frames and will make all the drawer fronts and doors inset to them. This is a more traditional way of adding strength and square to the boxes and adds a design element. This also makes the fit and trim of the doors and fronts more precise and almost necessitates hand planes and careful eyes, something the small shop can offer. A slower pace than mass produced, a more careful eye, a better grain balance, a more enjoyable work day. Nice work!
