Plywood or hardwood Cabinet Build

Recommended Posts

Has anyone built a cabinet out of hardwood?  Leaving the natural wood look?  If so, can someone post pictures?  Also,  how much wood was needed for the build.  This will go in my living room.

 

Thanks in advance everyone

Check out my build: 

 

Or, the VPF topic here: https://www.vpforums.org/index.php?showtopic=43812&hl=

I mostly used MDF and plywood but veneered the entire thing in Zebrawood.  I think that is a really good compromise:  ease of building with sheet goods but the look of whatever species of wood you can imagine.  Pretty cost effective too.  

oakwoodveneer.com and several other vendors have great selections of real and reconstituted wood veneer. 

All I can say is that my wife is letting me put it in the living room :)

I don't have a pincab but most of the guys that have built one say that plywood is stronger than MDF.  I'd say that applying a veneer would be easier than trying to figure out how to do joints so the end grain does not show.
