Default home made cj doors and other crap I've done

I was digging through some old pics of projects I've done over the years. Here's some from a side job I did years ago when I was working for another lumber company. The house belonged to the mother of my two friends from high school. I'd say it was due for an update.

Those pics are from a side job I did about 7 years ago.
I made all of my kitchen cabinets and doors years ago, and storage cabinets for the garage. I've also made a few computer desks.

Cool I built my own cabinets for the laundry room a couple months ago. No real experience with carpentry but they turned out real nice. Click image for larger version

Nice work ! I've worked at lumber companies for the last 20 years, so I get a good deal on materials and tools. I even ended up buying a panel saw (for cutting plywood) when one of the stores closed.

A panel saw would be sweet! And a discount on wood. It gets real expensive.

Two layers of 1/2 inch MDO plywood. It's the same plywood used for outdoor signs.

Need to go all classic cruiser style with some sliding windows. I am jk there the doors do look very lightweight. Frigging myers doors weigh like 40+ pounds each with the glass in.

These look really nice and just need some paint.

Did you make the top also? It looks quite nice with clean edges.
