Hi everybody....

I decided I wanted to try my hand at constructing my own 4-door production cabinet, from a sketch-up by Walter Gibson and I have a couple of questions, if you don't mind considering.

For the record, I'm no George Ledo or Michael Baker, both of whose work I've grown to admire, if not envy. I believe that I can do justice to Mr. Gibson's creation and simply wish to refine it as much as I can.

Do you have any suggestions for the door hinges? I mean, as far as keeping them "tucked away" and still operate smoothly?

Also, I was considering the use of Baltic Birch for the construction; then staining it for a more "dignified" finish. Or, would you (anyone) suggest perhaps a more exotic wood, since this is going to be a personal part of my collection.

Thank you!!

For some reason, that fact escaped me Richard. Thank you for the reply. I do intend on posting a photo, here, of my finished piece.
