Here is my first attempt at an old time spice cabinet. It uses 1/2 inch Douglas fir molding that I got from the lumber yard scrap bin. It’s 15×9x3.5 inches and is painted a burnt red. Next time I am going to attempt an antique paint look. It gave me some good practice at making drawers.

Love every detail….is this an original or do you have plans for it ?

Thanks Dusty. I saw something similar on-line, and it did give complete dimensions – see the link below. I took the idea and adapted it to the wood I was able to get. I don’t have a good way to get 1/2 inch lumber, so I have to be flexible when I find some. The model that I saw had 6 drawers, but I changed that too. I plan on making another one in the future with hopefully more of an antique look – stain or antiquing paint job and maybe nicer knobs.
