Chuck writes - These are cabinets that I've completed to give my shop a face lift. They have been built from materials left over from other projects. The cabinets are built from ripped 2x4's and covered with 1/2in. plywood sanded and stained with pecan and finished with polyurethane. The doors are 1/2in. also, with 1x4's routed and 45 degree corner cuts. The router top is made of 2x6's butted together.
Chuck writes - This was made from 1/2" plywood, it is hand painted. It took me one hour to design and cut but I spent four days painting, there is a lot of detail that doesn't show up in the picture.
Chuck writes - I made this sewing cabinet/desk for my wife. The top is made from 3/4" Reaita Pine. It's two tone with a lite red mixed in and small black spots about 6" apart covering the surface. The complete desk was made from one 4x8 sheet and measures 24" x 48" x 29". I used pecan stain and four coats of polyurethane sanding with 320 in between coats. The final coat was sanded with 000 then polished with Meguiar's Gold Glass clear coat auto wax.

Chuck writes - Hank is make of 3/4 pine with pecan stain and poly.
My wife is made of 1/4 pine with poly no stain. I was trying different sizes for speed and cost. I was able to tape the 1/4 together and cut two in the time of one.
I used 1/8 plwood painted black and glued them together for the backs.
