    Just an update: I haven't given up on my build. I may be side tracked a little adding New Equipment to my tools. So far a new router and now a cast aluminum router table. Various items from Rockler too. I have been reclaiming Cedar pieces from the Hurricane and now a have a bunch of 3/4" boards I want to tung and groove and glue to make some wide stock for some later projects. Kind of taking my time up and dollars I would have used on the new build. Also I am helping my Grandson finish his new PC desk that he is building. I hope to get back on it soon!

    I finished putting the framework in the front panel area and propped the panels in position in the head cab.

    Some more Progress today. Built support for a short back panel and drilled and mounted all Panels now. The next step is to disassemble and put the finish on the cabinet box.

    Nice. How did you get that mitered rake in the dovetail joints that I see in the upper corners on the face? What was your process?

    It is the result of proper setup when routing the dovetails to the correct depth so that when the pieces slide together the material buts up in the back of the cuts and fits as a tight contour leaving no voids in the pockets. Then when the cut at an angle is made no voids remain.
