A "Professional" Cabinetmaker by trade, in my spare time I find myself delving into the finer side of woodworking.
I enjoy the look of the cabinet. I had never considered painting the face but not the edges. I recently collaborated with a metal-whiz friend of mine to design some modern beside tables made with stainless steel frames, thick glass tops, and a 3/4" cherry faced ply drawer box size to "float" within the larger steel frame. We made no attempt to hide the edges of the ply, feeling it added a neat detail to an otherwise very plain piece.
In my shop, I try to build cabinets, etc. with as much care as I would take building a commission. When clients visit me in the workshop, I want to make sure my craftsmanship shows.
