I am trying to get a cabinet for the entryway for storing shoes, tennis racquets and a football. I have a 4' 8" by 17 " inch nook. So looking for a 54" by 27 " cabinet with 7 inch legs.
Carpenter 1 - gave me a plywood option with shutters in teak as I wanted louvered shutters. Ply he said would be century ply 18 mm. Cost - 28000/-
Carpenter 2 - gave me a plywood only for the back (12 mm) and the rest in 'sagwan lakdi'. Cost - 17000/-
Is Carpenter 1's option inflated? Or is Carpenter 2's option better?
