I’ve made quite a few of these using scrap countertop pieces, mdf and laminate. Hopefully, mdf qualifies as wood. 19.25” wide, 16” high & 13” deep. First off, the face of the countertop is turned inwards for the sides. 4 shelves are cut from mdf and the front edges are doubled up with a piece of shelf width, 2” X 3/4” for strength and to accept the shelf face laminate. The top shelf is face laminated and then the 3 other shelves are laminated on the face and top. The shelves are then screwed from the sides. The back is attached and then the sides are laminated and then the top. All screws are hidden. Hopefully someone can use this idea for future projects.

MDF ? yep that’s wood!

Nice work, and good to see you could still buy matching laminate as well

Herb garden is great! 10 out of 10 !!

Now the shed, I hope that’s not your workshop, otherwise I will be very envious !!

Strong rugged and not something you would want to drop on your toe!!

Well done !!

Thanks Robert & Jerry. The garden is my Wife’s thing, I go near it, she runs me off. The shed is my shop. I worked hard to get it and built it myself in ‘01. Thanks again.
