This is a New Yankee Worshop plan made from pine. The base cabinet has edge joined solid wood sides. The top is jointed with biscuits. The back of the shelf unit is bead board tongue and groove. This was an awesome project to learn lap joints which were used on the face frame, and of course norm incorporates several dado’s and rabbits to add strength and stability. I completed this project back in 2006 and did the upper shelf unit first. Then completed the bottom cabinet. After that, I did the drawers and doors. It was my first project with doors and drawers. I used a dovetail machine on my drawers. I didn’t use any drawer slides, just guides made from 1×2’s. This wasn’t my best piece, but it was a great project and turned out okay. I also learned that cutting miters in crown molding will drive you crazy if you don’t know what you are doing. I was fortunate that my wife called each of these pieces as gifts over the course of 2006. I guess as long as the boss of the house is happy, don’t complain. I apologiize for the clutter but we are getting ready for our new addition to our family (our first son). Doc says any day now. Due date is the 29th. I will try to get a picture of one of the drawers pulled out to show the dovetails.
