This is intended to be a liquor cabinet, although I suppose you could store all kinds of other stuff in there.

No. NO. NOOOOO!!! I cut the freaking mortises cut on the wrong end. I cut some squares and patched it up, then apparently mostly avoided photographing that side for the remainder of the project.

Had some t & g laying around which was pretty convenient for the back.

First time making/hanging a cabinet door. I really have no idea what I'm doing at this point.

It kind of fits. Just ignore the burn marks.

Mostly assembled.

Time to make the pull. Figured it would take a few tries, and was correct.

I didn't hear the "size your project to your kumiko panel" thing until too late. This made sizing and fitting the panel tricky.
