The plans said to use wood glue and clamping cauls to attach the face frames to the cabinet. I'm sure that would have held up fine, I just didn't trust it, and decided to add a couple of 3/4" x 3/4" screw strips inside both top edges, and pocket screws in the bottom and sides of the lower shelving area. It not only feels stronger, but I was able to pull the face frame tighter to the cabinet without the use of all the clamps I don't have.

The top shelf sections were the only ones that were glued.

The only reason I did this is because I didn't pre-drill the pocket hole screws before assembling, and couldn't fit a drill and the jig inside to drill the holes.

On Sunday, I installed the casters on two pieces of 1x4 and attached them to the base of the cabinet and face frames with some 2" deck screws.

You can't see them in the picture too well, but I installed a couple of large handles on the side with the swivel casters to make it easier to move around.

Oh... and my little man came out to check on the progress I'm making. He approves!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I am toying with the idea of building some "simple" inset raised panel doors. I made some inset doors for the hutch project I built, and I've been wanting to try raised panel doors for a while now.

All but finished

I'll limit my rambling in this post, and just post the pictures. If anyone wants more detail on anything below, just ask and I'll be happy to explain.

I decided to try my first set of raised panel doors.

Panel glue up: 2 pcs of 1x6 poplar

I built a tall auxiliary fence and clamped it to my fence.

I cut some test pieces to make sure my measurements, blade angle, and thicknesses were correct.

I made a raised and notched push jig to keep the panel tight to the fence, and my hands away from the blade.

You can see the blade angle was 9 degrees.

Blade angle: 9 degrees
Blade height: about 1 13/16" (high enough to reach the score cuts I made at 1 3/4")
Fence: 7/16" from bottom of blade

I made a couple of test panels using different blade angles and score cuts until I was happy with the fit.

I then moved on the the final panels. I planed them down earlier so that the front face of the raised portion would be co-planer with the front faces of the rails and stiles.

I then marked out my overlay, and installed the doors.

Finished product with doors installed. A couple of hiccups in the raised panels, but overall I'm pretty pleased.

I added some basic knobs last night, and now all I need to do is finish sanding and put a few coats of finish on it.

Thanks for viewing!

This was an awesome build, and I enjoyed watching you learn along the way. I even picked up a few pointers as well. The little guy will be helping you very soon, so start getting him his own little tool set.

I'm sure your dad is going to love this.

Final Post

Just wanted to post some pictures of the cabinet after it had been delivered.

You can see that Pops is one happy camper!

After he loaded all of his ammo in the cabinet he said, "I'm pretty low on ammo right now, so I'm glad there's still room for more" hahaha.

This is the top half of the front loaded with all of his cleaning supplies and whatnot. You can see the gun vise I made him for Father's Day sitting on top of the cabinet.

Thanks again for viewing, and I hope you enjoyed following the build thread as much as I enjoyed building the cabinet, and sharing it with all of you!

That is one proud papa there. I'm sure everytime your dad uses that cabinet, or thinks of using that cabinet, it will bring a smile to his face knowing you made that with all that special care you used. Very well done!

"A guy can't ever have too much stuff" (George Carlin).

There's extra space. Plus, there's a lot of supplies for the relatively small (rolling) footprint on the floor. The panel doors are a really nice design additive.
I've been shooting for more than 1/2 a century. I can understand his delight.

I think I may do that as well. Looks like it could be handy.

I see your dad likes Fiochi ammunition. Good company. They are local to me in SW Missouri. They used to be a client of mine. Pretty neat processes there.

I looked back at the pictures and saw that most of the Fiochi ammo he has is for my Mom's 28ga. Top shelf is 28ga., middle shelf is 20ga., and bottom shelf is 12ga. Judging by the name I would have thought Fiochi would be in Italy or something!

Awesome build, Captain! The cabinet came out really nice. And I see that dad's quite pleased with the outcome too. The happiness of the one who receives the project makes it all worthwhile.
