daughter wanted her version of that Ash cupboard I built. Didn’t want a door on the bottom unit, just open shelves, to hold four of those baskets. main drawer gets a pair of wire baskets. The skinny drawer hides the gap between the two units. Inside that gap are a pair of cleats to attach the top unit, and act as drawer guides.
Drawers use through dovetails. Stanley #45 ran beads around all openings, and down the outside corners.

Finish ( for now..) is one coat of Golden Oak Stain, then about three coats of Amber Shellac. Knobs are “white birch”

Panel in the door was “raised” using a handplane. Panel sits in a groove in the frame.

Completed unit stands 77-1/4” tall, counting the nail-on foot pads.

Not too bad of a project…

The cabinet came out great! You really did a nice job on this—and I love those dovetails!

A stop for the skinny drawer, so it won’t just slide out the back.

Main drawer gets baskets, as well…wire ones.

Nicely done bandit. That’s my second favorite piece that I’ve seen you make.
