Storage Cabinet #2

This is the second of two cabinets I built for our back porch. There are two nooks between the chimney that my wife uses for storage of small gardening tools, bird seed and a lot of other stuff that was all being housed in cardboard boxes.

The right side storage container pulls out and has two compartments for bird seed. The left side is a pull out shelf that can hold just about anything—I don’t ask. The baskets are for dog leashes, collars…

I made the cabinets out of plywood and did the face frames and door frames out of poplar from the local Home Depot. Painted with latex to match the porch.

It certainly looks much better than a couple of cardboard boxes and made my wife very happy. The advantage of making stuff yourself—not to save money but to get a custom fit and meet the specifications of the person who is going to use it every day. Nothing fancy but functional.

Chris-Thanks for looking at the cabinet. It sure beats using a box where all the stuff you need seems to find its way to the bottom. It’s good to keep my #1 customer happy.

Very nicely done. The ability to customize is my favorite part, too!
