My Wife and I needed more storage in our house. With limited closet space and few case pieces in our home this project gave me a chance to add storage and practice making more complicated doors and drawers than I am used to making. This project also did not cost very much since it is made entirely from construction grade 2x, 1x, and plywood (plus drywall compund as filler. Why not.). At the end of the day, storage added=happy wife.

Nice finish and it fits great. A very distinguished looking piece.

Nice piece and good work. I can’t believe it’s made out of construction lumber.

Well done. I like the design and all the details. Nice job on finishing the top as well.

Congrats.

Best,

Serge

nice!

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.

I did not have any set plans when I built this other than the dimensions of the wall it sits against and the height I wanted. I just looked at a bunch of sideboards on the internet and decided what kind of cabinet I wanted to build and went from there. Plans would have saved me several extra trips to the home center and moments of head scratching however.

Even better.. :) Again great piece. Is the moulding at the bottom store bought or did you mill it yourself?

Self milled. saved several $s there. I made the trim on my router workbench. The trim on the side panels and the top and bottom is my cove and bead mould bit and a 1/4” roundover bit so there is one pass on each side of the board. I think the roundover bit gives the cove and bead a little more interesting look. There is just a regular, and really dull, cove mould set on the top of the cove and bead trim. The smaller cove on the corners of the front and all along the base is actually a black and decker roman ogee bit I bought in a set at wal mart. That bit is set really shallow. I found that by accident.
The moulding around the doors and drawes is just a bead mould. It would be really nice to have the kreg jig bead mould face frame system next time.
