I want to build a kitchen island, ~3' x4'. I am going to use a slab of granite for the top, but have some questions on the carcass.
I have lot of black cherry that came from a tree I felled and had milled on the property. I thought it would be nice to build this from that. But all the how-to's I come across regarding cabinet building refers to using plywood for the carcass. Now, I could just use cherry ply for the sides and back, then use my wood for the rest, but is this necessary? I mean, what if I glued up panels from the wood I have and used that in lieu of the plywood? Are there reasons of seasonality that dictates one use plywood?
