Yes on the finishing,   Using Watco Cherry Stain followed by Watco Wiping Poly .
Doors are done need to be installed.
The center Unit has raised panel doors upper and lower. The outside units have glass doors upper and glass shelves and raised panel on the lower doors.
The outside units will have LED down lighting to display the china

Sal, looking great thus far.

Are your boxes domino'd together?  Appears that you attach face frames with dominos from what I can tell?

Also wondering how your shelves are suspended as they don't appear to be on adjustable shelf pins - I do see your Kreg case so pocket holes from below perhaps?

Thanks.

Love the photo progression... in the first series, each photo added another box to the outside!  It's huge!

Like the curve of sapwood on the top rail.  Dunno if it was intentional, but I like it there.

Keep posting progress as the boat yard lets you.

Yeh - could have played some symmetry with the pieces on the left and second right top rails.

Nice stuff though - HUGE cabinet !

Somehow, "Chinet Cabinet" just doesn't sound right.

The cabinet looks great, Sal!

I often wonder why people get funny about seeing sapwood or knots in a real timber piece of furniture, it just seems oxymoronic!
I like that you included those pieces in the build, though I suspect some of it will be hidden by a crown mould/cornice  [wink]
Please post the conclusion to this project when the boating madness calms down ;D ( Been there, the mad rush to get boats back into the water, repaired, upgraded and freshly anti-fouled.... [big grin] )

Have no clue what that ghostly circle is on the first picture

Very nice Sal.

Do you have a source for the blue pulls?  I see them on a lot of casework on this forum.  [big grin]
