My buddies on LJ’s know that I neither claim to be a cabinet maker or do I have nary a desire to be one. So naturally one of my oldest friends in the world came looking to have a cabinet built for his daughters dorm room. As bad as I didn’t want to say yes, I told him if he would buy the materials I would give it a go. Several days went by and I was starting to hope he had changed his mind when low and behold…he comes toting in a couple of sheets of plywood and some 1×4’s. I have gotten into the habit of having the big box store break the plywood sheets down when I pick them up but I neglected to tell him this so …. After a wee bit of plywood wrestling this is what I came up with. The carcase is 1/2” and the door skins and back were metric equivalent of 3/8” so thankfully it wasn’t too bad. The handles he got were made for 3/4” thick doors so I had to scramble to make them work on the thin stuff. Sadly I ran out of days on my vacation so he is going to stain and clear coat it . 60” tall, 28” wide and 19.5” deep. The only frills were adjustable shelves and in the door storage.
