How To Make A Shaker Cabinet

Looking to learn how to build a Shaker style cabinet? Look no further with this cherry cabinet that I built for my shop. Yes, my shop! We can have nice things too, right?  The entire cabinet is made out of solid cherry with the door panels being a beautiful book-matched piece of cherry. 

The case is assembled using finger joints and through mortise/tenons. The doors are assembled using a Festool domino but I find dowel joinery just as fast and easy for frame and panel doors. If you don't have either, pocket hole joinery is an option as well. 

For the finish, I brushed on 4 coats of a dewaxed shellac using my Ox hair brush.
