Here is the latest project which came out of the basement workshop. I made it out of pine, and it is painted white to match the rest of the kitchen cabinets. THe frames are put together with pocket screws. I did use a lot of plywood to minimize how much wood I would otherwise have had to edge joint. The only piece that is edge joined is the top. I put 3/4” pieces in front of each of the shelves to cover the plywood edges. This was a great project, even though it took a lot longer than I originally planned. The upper cabinet is just a shelf. The hardware that keeps it from lowering down was bent and I didn’t like it, so it was removed. It works just fine without it. Thanks for checking it out.
