Nice neat job pottzy. Love the pattern of the top and the way you matched the lamination.

A very interesting “simple” cabinet you have made there Pottzie and a fantastic result.

Now after I have had a close examination of the “6” photos and detailed construction notes I find I still need to ask some additional quetions if I may.

The shelves:
1. How thick are the adjustable shelves? 1a. what method did you use to make them adjustable? 1b. They look to be edge banded with similar build material at the front….correct?

The side panels and frame work:
2. I see the sides are flat panel and trim but notice the insides are all flush, a nice effect, 2a how did you do it? sequence of construction please. 2b The method of jointing the frame is the next question? 2c How the panels are attached to get them flush inside? 2d Is the beading an add on ?

Hardware and hinges
3. In regard to the hinges I see you have used 1/2 ovelay but, 3a how much overlay is there on the actual cabinet allowing for the setback inside and the additional trim around the front? 3b Are there any additional spacers on the euro hinges to make it all work so necely. 3c Where did you get the hardware from? the handles look particularly nice as well.

The back
4. I looked for a photo of the back but was unable to find one (must have been No 7 eh) so, 4a how did you finish the back?

Thats enough for the initial questions for the time being,

Rating a very exceptional cupboard and I can relate to the reason for its construction, a similarity to the shoe cupboard I made.

Sometimes its a race to see who gets to use the little work area I have as its directly alongside the clothes line!!

A lot of nice detail work on the panels and face frame. The recessed frame for the overlay doors is really nice. Great piece.

For a small cabinet, it is very detailed. Very nice work. And kudos for the adjustable shelf. Something we don’t think of on small cabinets but useful to have when needed.

I note a little sarcasm rob?well I expected none the less from you but got more than I thought!

sheklves-3/4 thick melamine edge banded with the same oak made adjustable with pins set into holes space evenly apart.

the panels-well the corner posts are 1-1/2×1-1/2 and the panels are 3/4 so I set them flush to the inside all joined together with bisquits.the beading is added on.

hinges=I know you have challenges down under getting hardware,these came from woodworkershardware .com not sure if they will ship to you,check em out.they are set right at 1/2” no spacers of any kind.wire handles one of my favorites when I want a clean simple look.

the back-well there are only “4” pics rob and I did forget to show the back which is just 1/4”white melamine set between 1/4 oak half round front and back.makes it easy to clean,makes wife happy.

phew-I hope that takes care of all your concerns,and if you need more don’t hesitate too ask-I know you wont!love ya buddy you always make my post more interesting!!!!

Thank you Pottzy.

Sarcasm?.....really… me?.... just add a couple more pickies when you get a mo please.

Shelves, good got it.
Panels and posts OK beading well done all look really nice.
Biscutis a great joiner regardless of what others think.

Hinges yeah dont rub it in! ....I wll however go check out the reference unbelievable the lack of gear available in AUS no Willams and Hussey or Shopfox/Grizzly are available nor will they ship. let alone nice hardware.

The process you have used is most impressive for what you refer to as a simple cupboard.

BTW when LBD left kindy he could only count from zero to 1 it was only later in life he managed 2 then by chance discovered by looking down he could now count to 4 !! 4×4 + 16 and the hex goes on!!

Additional note:
I checked out woodworkershardware .com they ship to AUS upn contact and arrangments but the charges would be prohibitive I am assuming at least it was when I tried to buy MicroJig products (now available via Carba tech) possibly the only one stop shop for WW stuff but you pay for it big time.

So its just wait for ebay China meanwhile.
