Just finished installing these carriage style storage cabinets in a basement for a customer. The carcass is made of poplar ply and 4/4 poplar. The legs are six inch and have leg levelers installed in them. The basement floor has a bad crown, and the levelers make my life much easier at install time. Door are around 78” high and 22” wide. I made the doors with my adjustable tongue and groove Freud router bit. I made the frame of the door 1” thick to help carry the size and weight of the door. The panels of the door a 4” grooved exterior siding ply. Shelves are all adjustable. I used Spiral Shelf Supports for the first time. They worked great..because they are fine tunable shelf supports…can get rid of any wobble you may have in the shelf. Over all the cabinets end up being 172” wide and 85”high

They look great. I’d love to see what they’d look like with a couple contrasting colors to accent all the hard work.

As the saying goes … “Form follows function.”
