This is the first project I have posted on any website. I forgot to take pictures during the building of it. I do have one before picture of the space it was built for.
We bought this house at the end of July 2011. We needed cabinets in almost every room. I did not like seeing boxes and general clutter every time I went down stairs as per picture 4. So I made two cabinets to hide it all. The cabinet on the right(picture5) was made first. It measures 42wx42hx17d. Both are 3/4 inch Maple plywood with Maple trim. The one on the left has a base that is 60wx37hx22d. The upper part is 60wx35hx14d. All finished with Spar Polyurethane. I am not happy with the quality of the finish but I am so busy with projects that since it looked ok I just went with it.
The top of the cabinet has a 3/4 inch lip which helps hide the UPS, DSL modem, router, print server, and network hard drive. Also the top part of the left cabinet is removable from the base.
I did enjoy making this and since I upgraded from working in the driveway at our old home to having a small shop the quality of my work has gone up. Having the right tools and a real work bench helps.
I hope this helps someone else in the design of their cabinet.
