My wife wanted me to turn a corner of our dining room into mega-storage, so this 42-cu-ft. cabinet is the answer. Phase One, the finished carcase, is complete. All 3/4” birch ply except the 1/2” back panel, it’s pocket-screw and glue assembly, with two coats each of primer, paint, and water-based poly on all components before assembly. It had to be assembled in-place since it’s sized to fill the area with just enough room at the top for the ceiling molding to wrap around the top to make it look built-in.
Phase two will be the face frame; phase three will be eight doors, and phase four a set of pan drawers in the lower-left area. Meanwhile, she can start loading it down with stuff next week, after all the finish has had a week to cure.
Happy wife, happy life!
ETA: I’ve added another picture now that the face frame is dry-fitted and some of the door frames have been cut to rough size.
ETA2: The fourth picture shows the doors all in place, with 4 of them primed, painted and polyed, and all the hardware hung.
