The back of the cabinet

I once heard a little story about a cabinet maker.

This cabinet maker took pride in his craft. Whereas other cabinet makers might cut corners by putting in a cheap plywood back, he insisted on making the backs of his cabinets look just as beautiful as the fronts.

His customers might never see the back of the cabinet and it took him massively more effort to make the back look great too. But this man went through the trouble anyway, because it made him feel proud.

In your line of work, what’s the back of the cabinet?
