Basement Kitchenette Cabinets

I've finally started making some cabinet for the small kitchenette area
in our basement next to the theater. The room is narrow so won't be
using a standard size cabinet, these are 22" deep instead of the normal
24". The main panel are made from 3/4" oak plywood and all the face
frames are made using oak. This is oak lumber that I have from trees
that I took down from the house in Leesburg.

The oak has been drying outside for a few years and doesn't look good
when you start working with it, but once planed and jointed, it looks
nice. Will use a natural finish that doesn't add any color to the wood.
The pictures show the cabinets almost ready to be sanded and finished.
The last picture shows the two base cabinets sitting in the room where
they'll go- wanted to make sure the fit and the layout will work. This
will get the small refrigerator we have in there up to a more convenient
height. Will also have a small bar sink.
