Here’s my one and only (so far) piece of cabinetry I’ve built. BORG Birch plywood, with Maple faceframes and simple rail & stile doors. Built in two sections, It holds Loads of food etc… with space for two small appliances.
Used a Kreg jig for assembly, tablesaw and router for materials prep. Overall dimensions 84” talll, 30” wide and about 25” deep.

I built this to replace a particle board cupboard which was falling apart, the LOML loves the cubbyholes in the upper section.

The handles were cut on the tablesaw, and then rounded over with a table mounted router.

finish was sprayed waterborne poly over a light maple stain.

After a couple of years of use, I’m looking forward to reworking the doors slightly, they’ve swelled just enough that they dont’ quite close correctly. My tools have all been in storage, however, so we’ve just lived with it awhile. Pretty soon, I expect I’ll be taking the doors off and putting them to the router table, to get just a smidgeon more clearance in the center. That would be the least visible way to fix the issue I can think of.

Debbie, they hold an incredible amount of stuff… which can be a bad thing too. I’m thinking of making a slide out tray for a couple of them, have to figure out how to retrofit that in, in place… cause I’m not emptying that sucker other than the cubby itself.

That looks REALLY GOOD!! Exactly the piece I would like to be able to put together. How long did it take, Ned?

You know, a slide out tray partitioned into a spice rack would be nice too! Nice project Ned!

Crunchy, given my skill level, working on weekends/evenings etc… about a month… took about three sheets of 3/4 ply, plus 4 handi panels of 1/4” for the flat panel the LOML requested for the doors. Oh, and plus a full sheet of 1/2” for the back, forgot about that.

The only ‘tricky’ section is the cubby area, but that’s just dadoes and partitions. Cut the Dadoes on the top and bottoms of the partitions at the same time, so they’ll line up.
