If you want a natural finish on your cabinet, you need to buy stain-grade plywood, which is more expensive. Otherwise, purchase paint-grade material for all of the plywood specified. If you opt for stain-grade plywood, make sure to choose wood with a matching grain for all of the parts specified in pine in this materials list.
The top of the cabinet is constructed of laminated 1x4 boards. Most building-supply stores sell sections of pine that have already been laminated. If you want to laminate the boards yourself, you need 21 linear feet of 1 x 4 pine and at least two bar clamps.
To attach the doors, I used a decorative semi-concealed hinge. The visible side is attached to the cabinet and the concealed side is attached to the back of the cabinet door. Other styles are also available.
