Another potboiler to pay the bills…Have you ever had a project that just fought you every step of the way? It was like no, I don’t want to be a cabinet and YOU can’t make me! It even jumped off the bench and tried to commit suicide just as it was almost finished and I had to replace three panels! Of course I tried to catch this 200# or so cabinet with my leg and foot and dang did that hurt! Then it tried again loading it in the truck and hit the ground again but no damage this time. Finally gone and installed and the customer loved it. Good riddance!

Nice little project – I’m happy that you beat it and it didn’t get the best of you.

looks nice! Are those just rabbet and dado joints for the whole thing?

Don’t bring back the nightmares. It’s a huge relief when one of THOSE jobs gets delivered and the client loves it. What’s not to love though? Good build. Nice functional piece.

I’m having a problem determining how big it is. At 200 + pounds, it’s got to be a monster.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

She’s 32X72 inches and all 3/4 melamine so HEAVY!
Dados and rabbets. Pocket holed the back on.
