Built as an add-on to my kitchen cabinets, this was my first drawer build/fit project using the old-fashioned wooden runner/groove supports for the drawers. For flatware and kitchen utensil storage. Oak drawer fronts, framed wainscotting door. Spring ‘09 project

what a wonderful idea—filling a spot (I hate wasted spaces in a kitchen) and the drawers are excellent. I’d love to a cupboard like this in my kitchen!

I have a small kitchen and this is really a great use of that space.
