33.5”H, 30.5”W, 21”D
This is the first piece I have made without a plan. It started with a frame similar to how I did my router table. Lots of pine there, but very sturdy. Since it didn’t look like something I could put in the living room, I added plywood around the box (something Lowes had in 1/2” from Ecuador). From there, I made a face frame out of scrap red oak I decided to try my hand at wooden runners and built a drawer. That took some time, but it slides easy enough for my 5 year old to operate. The cabinet doors are red oak frame, with maple plywood panels for color. After getting one door completely square, and the second very close, I found the opening to be off. So, thanks to some searching on LJ, I followed suggestions to use laminate samples on the opposite of corners that needed shaving (used the TS for this).
The top is red oak 3/4” plywood, with red oak edging.
