My first commision, and the quickest build I’ve ever done.

Pine and ply had to match existing cabinets. Luckily some boards I had (salvaged shelving from my house), which were already finished, matched the customer’s existing cabinets. How luck can you get!

The case is 3/4 ply sides, with 1/2 ply shelves dadoes into it.

The face frame is assembled with stub tenons (cause I hate pockethole screws), and brad nailed to the case.

Six oak dowels run through the shelves to gently define three compartments.

This open cabinet (the customer requested it that way) will hold cookie sheets and such.
