This was my husband's and my second furniture build, and the first with doors! We went ahead and followed the dimensions in the instructions, and even with wood that was 3.5, we still had doors that were a little short. I figure it adds character. Hinges were a little difficult for us, as we are new to woodworking DIY projects, but I'm very happy with the final project. Edge banding, magnetic clasps, and stain throughout really makes it look like a nice, finished piece. Thanks, Ana!

A side note on timing, for us this was a long weekend project that took us in to the next week. For others, I am sure it could go much quicker. That time also included finishing.
