My wife needed a small cupboard for storing overflow kitchen items. She had something in this spot allready, but it was pretty much useless when it came to storage (attached as picture 3 – as you can see it was all leg). By using the same footprint I greatly increased the storage capacity and IMHO this unit looks way more attractive.
After I put this together, a friend that is a decorative painter by trade helped me to finish it using milk paint. The colors are those that my wife wanted and had used on the previous, store bought piece. She’s very happy with this new one, which means life is good.
things of possible interest:
This is my first project using my new Lee Valley Bevel-Up Jointer/Planer with PVM-11 blade – what a tool!
I used pine for this project, except for the drawer box, which includes poplar in the usual places
The drawer is half-blind dovetails
It’s about 35” tall X 30” wide X 9.5” deep (fits the space perfectly)
Thanks for looking. I’m happy to answer any questions.
-- Glue-up is still the stage when everything that was perfect in dry-fit goes horribly wrong, but I'm working on it.
