Considering all the screw heads that show, I’d guess that it’s a shelf unit for a garage and the guy doesn’t care. Perhaps that left end will be on the wall up against a corner?

That was not made by a pro.
Like Joe says the screws…

That was made by a less experienced person, and it shows.

That looks like something I’d do….I’m a pretty shabby builder, and would prolly just let it ride…..My grandpa was a carpenter and cabinet builder….I remember him saying once that “there ain’t nothing that can’t be fixed, if you use a bead of caulk, and some paint”.....He used a lot of both in his 80 years….......

The shelf looks like an old fence board as well.

Hey….at least your willing to admit it, and don`t try to pass yourself off as something you aren’t.
I`d bet you`re willing to listen and learn also….nothing wrong with that.

I’ve seen you work and your very nice shop, I think you would have to close one eye and use your wrong arm to recreate that. LOL

The screws are going to be covered with crown, but that’s no excuse for the open butt joint.
I know who is building this, I won’t mention any names, but he is a self proclaimed professional and is getting a pile of money to build this unit. (how ever much a pile of money is?)

As for me I maintain very high standards in my building. Basically I will never pass any work with a crack or joint wider than 3/16”. I figure up to 3/16 we can fill it with some mud. But that is definitely where I draw the line. Lol.

Just think… the guy that built it might even be SELLING it…. and tell you “Why would you buy crap from IKEA when you can have my craftsmanship to last a lifetime” for 3X their price?

He wouldn’t be building it out of pine boards, because he can’t stand plywood, would he?

Well? Never can tell what he is thinking.
I would hope he at least weighs out advice that has been given to him.
And maybe up his quality before acting like he knows it all.
