Square boxes of mdf put together using dowels.
It’s a rather simple and quik result project.
Made this one a few years ago for someone. But it ended up in my home.
It’s mounted to the wall in the center box ,also with dowels.
Painted it with Some white-wash paint.
And it’s got 2 Led lights.

Nice cabinet. Lights are cool. How are you hanging it to the wall? Did you dowel the corners of the boxes?
Here’s a drawing of a jig I’ve used in the past to join miter cuts making boxes. I use the drill press, then cutout for the box corner to make the jig. After inserting dowel then trim with pull saw and sand.

That is really neat looking. It doesn’t even look like MDF. Looks like it would be heavy.

Nice work! I think they’d be ideal for kids’ rooms, so they’d free up floor space and they can rearrange the contents whenever they please . . . very versatile and functional!
