This is a big cubbie cabinet made for a local charity to hold merchandise a more efficiently. It is made from about 90% salvage from a construction site and throw away furniture from the apartment complex I live it. It intentionally does not have a finish on it as that was what was requested.

Used dados on the sides and top. Used rabits to attach the top to the sides. And 1/2 cut throughs (i am sure it has a name but i don’t know what it is yet) to intersect the shelves and dividers. Because of the expected load I let each divider go to the floor and but a kick/toe board to hide the plywood edges and to stop things from rolling underneath as it would be too heavy to move.

Thats a great looking cabinet, makes me think I should adapt that idea into some shop storage.
