Anybody else building with Menard’s lumber?

For my latest project I scored some decent figured maple from my local Menard’s. My first real attempt at building my own cabinets and I might actually enjoy it almost as much as building the amps.

KILLER for a first attempt. I also get most things through Menards, although only pine.
Thanks. I found a few YouTube videos that made building a sled for my table saw to cut box joints pretty easy. I didn’t have a table saw but found a Delta at a local pawn shop for cheap. The speaker cab is made of Menards pine, but I wanted something a bit dressier for the amp head. Took about an hour to dig through their maple to find stuff with a decent flame, but you can’t beat tge price. They had a few “dimensional” hunks of maple that had a great birdseye figuring but were 10’ long. I’m considering picking up a Milwaukee m18 circular saw just to keep in my Jeep to cut those big hunks down to travel length in the parking lot.

Thanks. I messed up in plenty of spots but all in all for not having any idea what I’m doing I think they came out pretty good.
pffsh - looks just about perfect to me..

sh*ts bricks on my first attempt 😅(although i did use recycled timber with a fair few nicks, nails etc.)
