More than several years ago I entered a lake cottage on a service call and the first thing that caught my attention was a cupboard. Upon finishing my chore at hand I grabbed my ruler, pencil and pad.
I made several of them but my favorite is the one pictured that I made using poplar. The panels in the doors and the back are all re-sawn and half lapped. The floor in the bottom portion is 1/4” Luan glued and brad nailed to support strips on the perimeter as well as a center support.
