This was my first project with doors! Everything worked perfectly, except there seems to be a small mistake on the cut list - the 4 1x3's for the doors should be 14", not 11" each. The picture is correct but the cut list should be revised. Otherwise, instructions were easy to follow. I used a metal grill pattern for the door insets - purchased from Lowes, cut with tin snips and spray painted matte black. This cabinet is a great storage space and an all-around great project. One extra small tip - it may be better to set the top piece back a 1/4 inch more so that it goes over the top edge of the plywood backing on the rear - it would make for a cleaner finish. Thanks Ana - this is my 4th project from your website and I hope to furnish an entire (tiny) house all by hand!
