« Part 2: Webframes.... Part 3 of Pine Pantry Cupboard series Part 4: Top installed »

See IF I can get caught up here…

Top of the face frame while clamped up…..someday, I will have shorter clamps…Hard hat area! Test fit the top webframe, as well..

Down at the bottom, I did find a few shorter clamps….bottom webframe sitting there, out of the way….

Now the cussing can begin. One man shop, with barely enough room for my fat body…...and I am dancing around with this “thing” that is an inch taller than I am, and over 30” wide…..

Drilled a bunch of pilot holes, and counter bored them….some a wee bit too deep….Then, try to hold the face frame AND one side panel in place, long enough to glue and screw….then repeat for the other side…..did this “dance” twice….top frame and then flip this on to it’s top, and add the bottom frame…

Nice looking up to do a little work? Then the bottom..

I am holding the webframe 3/4” down, to allow for the plywood bottom shelf. Top frame is flush with the top edge of the sides, so I can attach the top to it..

After attaching side 2 at the bottom, I could flip the case back onto it’s feet…..and finish adding screws.

Not a whole lot of room down here….

Even less went I set out a 1×10 x 6’ plank, so I can measure for two pieces at 31” long…...

Next time I can get to the shop, I need to saw two lines, joint a couple edges, and glue up the panel for the top.

Need to buy a sheet of 3/4” plywood to cut into shelves and a back.
Stay tuned….

I find the lumber yard plywood will cup/warp. So I buy 2 sheets at half the thickness and glue them back to back and it solves the problem. It is extra work. You do need a bunch of small clamps around the edges and heavy weights for the middle or you could put in some temporary screws or pin nails to keep the sheets from sliding out of square on the glue. you can then buy AC or BC plywood. I also have the store use their panel saw to cut the sheets into quarters, because my shop is to small to handle large sheets. I trim the edges and square up the glue up with my old table saw if I need to. You can edge plane plywood. A scrub plane used with light passes is great for cleaning up excess glue, but be careful with softwood.

Figure the weight of the canned goods the Boss will be keeping in there, will keep the shelves flat..if I place them so they want to curve up. 3/4” doesn’t seem to cup as much as the thinner stuff does around here.

Will screw the shelf panels to a cleat and the the cleat to the sides. There will also be screws through the back into the shelves. Boss will cover the shelves anyway.

Pantry will get painted. I hand her the brush, then go back to the shop.

3/4, 5/8, 1/2 all cup here. The 1/2 seems to look best though.
