Okay nearing the finish line 5 new pics are up. I need to get the shelves in and then put the end pieces on and the corner trim and I'll be done.

Total = $589.46 US, that includes a new sander, new circular saw (old one broke finally), couple of saw blades, new hole cutting drill bit parts.

So really not bad at all. I get a cabinet I KNOW isn't going to collapse under the weight, looks nice. The tools I consider an investment. Plus have lots of left overs that can be used later, like trim, screws, ply wood, etc.

Also this was a big accomplishment for me personally. I am however worn down to the nub, sore as heck and totally worn out. Project completed in one week.

Thanks for the support guys.

One last item, I put those little stick-n-click lights inside so when I open the doors I just reach up inside and click them to get light on the shelves.

If I could do it all over again I would have put big swivel casters(wheels) under mine and cover them up with a skirt under the cabinet cause I am always moving stuff around but it's too late for me

I'd have to put a truck chassis under mine.
