My first complete project using pocket-hole joinery. All but the backing and the four light colored boards that make up the frame of the case are recovered lumber. The wide boards were recovered from the attic of a garage, used to create a loft-like area for storage. The doors were all recycled wooden pallets. The “feet” were blocks from pallet runners. To get the right width of the case and shelves, the boards were all assembled using pocket hole joinery, as were the frames of the doors. The finished case is 50” tall, 60” wide and 15” deep.
It took forEVER to build, was by far the most difficult rustic style piece of furniture I have built, but is also the one I am the most proud of to date. The client is having is sealed with polyurethane and that’s it. It took twice as long as I expected and I should have charged twice as much…lol…
