3/4 cypress plywood
5/8 birch plywood
2 1/2 nails
sandpaper 80, 120, 220 grit
trim router bit
stain ( dark walnut and ebony)
How to do this project
Cut out stock for face frame
Build face frame
Cut out sides (3/4 cypress)

Nail on face frame
Putty and sand (80 grit, 120 grit, and 220 grit sandpaper)
Trim (router) excess face frame from cabinet sides
Stain cabinet (custom mixture of dark walnut/ebony) using hvlp sprayer
After wiping, let stain dry (min 3 hours, preferably 24 hours).
Spray 2 coats of sanding sealer. (Spray, let it dry, spray ,let it dry.)
After second coat of sealer dries, the wood grain will raise and be rough. Use a foam sanding block (I use 150 grit) to sand down raised wood grain until smooth.
After sanding cabinet smooth, spray top coat (1 coat). Once it dries, the wood grain will raise slightly. Use foam block to lightly sand until smooth.
Spray a second coat of top coat, let it dry. You're Done! Just that easy! Now my wife's happy therefore I am as well 😁
