Here is my first “real” project. I needed a storage solution in our living/entertainment room to get it better organized. It is a few shelves for the electronics and a cubby unit.

One of my objectives in building the cubby unit was to build something with no fasteners. So I got some practice with dado & rabbet joints and elmers wood glue. Have to admit I cheated on the back panel. Lots of screws holding that in. I envisioned the kids knocking the back panel off as they through things into the bins.

Looks good. What kind of finish are you thinking of throwing on there?
