Check out my gallery for pictures of mine. I built it out of Oak veneered MDF (3/4") and it worked beautifully. Looks fantastic, just had to edge band everything that needed it. It seals very well.

I did make the drawer and two shelves from spanish cedar and it is plenty aromatic.

PM me with questions, I really enjoyed building it and will do another soon. Based on this experience I also recommend considering biscuit joinery for the construction. I did the entire cabinet with it and I like the results.

I forgot to post a link, sorry about that. HERE it is.

The things I had trouble with with the MDF could probably be fixed if you know more about woodworking. I had some chip-out at the ends and like a bonehead I dinged a piece. Thanks Bob for your comments on MDF vs. Plywood as I was considering plywood for the next one. I'll stick with MDF, although I will have to look harder for Mahog. edge banding.

Oh, the door and top of the pictured cabinet are solid. I'm pretty sure that's what the real makers, like Bob, do. I have a new appreciation for his work after this project. It was fun and not horribly hard, but the details wore me out at times.
