This is a really simple plan I got from Ana White. You can cut and assemble it in an afternoon.

A 3/4” plywood carcass with hardwood (red oak) face frame for durability.

my wife sends me links to plans from her site all the time. Its all fairly simple since she doesnt use fancy joinery and mostly dimensional lumber. An easy way for me to make the wife happy.

Simple design but looks really well made. I’m sure it will last long to be enjoyed by the whole family.
