Wife had a birthday so I decided to make a gift instead of buying foreign goods. She needed a place to store can goods etc,so I did just that.
It is 3/4 Oak with a 1/4 inch ply backing and stationary shelves on full length cleats
Size is 84 tall 17 wide and 24 deep.Stained it Min Wax and white interior .The face frame is some pine I had laying around waiting to be sized up and put to use. Also had some Maple I used for rails.

Thanks for looking

Very Nice and I 110% agree, I would rather sit on the floor than give my money to China. and besides like you said it’s all particle board(throw away furniture) any how.
