Crappy photo, I know and apologize for. But, here is a quick photo of the cubby I am making. Carcass is birch ply with maple face frame and shelves.

The face frame was assembled with my Kreg Pocket Hole Jig, which I’ve had for about 9 months and this was the first project I’ve used it on, and I love it.

The shelves are dadoed into the carcass, which I love to do, rabbets too. I really like mortise and tenons too.

Not sure how I will attach the face to the carcass yet, glue or maybe brads. Will see kind of how it goes. Will post another phot when it is completed, and hopefully a better picture.

since your carcass is ply, you can glue your face frame… at least that is what I usually do. Some may disagree and I’m willing to learn with you. But ply is stable and face frame is usually fairly thin stock. Since wood only expands across its’ width, expansion isn’t much of an issue here.
