Built this cedar cabinet for our neighbors as a way of saying thank you for all the help that they offered to my wife and kids while I was busy with pilot training for the Air Force.
Put it together on a Saturday, from first cut to finished product was about six hours. All materials were purchased at a blue big box store, with the exception of the internal shelves, which were put together from various hardwood scraps I had laying around the garage. Built a 2×4 frame, then clad it in cedar. The top I jointed and then put together with glue and biscuits to ensure a water-tight seal. This will be underneath a large patio roof, so hopefully it won’t need to be waterproof, but you never know. The whole thing was put on swiveling casters to make it easier to move around, and a hole was drilled into the bottom to allow electric cords to pass through it without damaging that pretty cedar.
This was built to replace the plastic “rubbermaid” cabinet that is in the background of the second picture, as it was too shallow to hold the outside stereo.
The neighbor and my kid helped me shop for supplies in the last photo.
