Today proved to be productive even if it did take all day! :-(

I had all the pieces for the second cabinet except for one and I had to cut some dadoes in another. These were the cut to fit parts of the tray cubbies and the tool cubbies.

I won’t bore you with pics of the front since they are the same as the first one I built.

Here is the cabinet from the back side.

This pic shows the French cleat and bottom spacer attached.

Close up of the cleat.

And the spacer.

Gotta love it when a plan comes together. Just like I drew it up! :-)

Dead level! :-) Check out the bubble on the back of the drill. :-)

Shelves temporarily set in place to make sure they fit. Of course they fit, I cut them to fit. :-)

Looks like it is time to build some face frames. I bought some poplar at the lumber yard that was discounted 50%. Perfect sizes for the frames.

I am feeling really satisfied with the outcome so far.
