« Part 5: Shelves getting installed Part 6 of Pine Pantry Cupboard series Part 7: Back is completed »

Ok, got all the shelves done.. even after having to fix a couple.. Shelf #2 and #3 needed adjusted a bit….right sides were a bit lower than the left, and #3 was the worst. Errors tend to add up faster than the IRS.

Once the fix was done, I added cleats for shelf #4 and #5…..that was the easy part. I used a box of Mash Potato Mix to set the heights of the cleats, and a framing square to to the cleats level front to back.

Today, I had to clear off the bench..

Added a couple stick to keep the plywood off the bench, don’t want to cut into the top of the bench. Marked out for a cut..

This was one of the few spots where I could use the factory edge. Rest of the time, I had to measure three times, and the framing square to connect the “dots”. Got out a saw guide for some of the cuts..

At one time, it was a “fence” made for a jobsite saw. Now gets used as a saw guide. I measure where the cut goes, add an offset for the bottom of the saw..

Almost like a track-saw? There is a cleat under the back edge, set to 90 degrees to the guide fence. A c clamp to hold it in place, and just hold the saw to the guide. Anyway, got two shelf panels out of the plywood panel, and a section for the back…a bead of glue on the cleats, a few pilot holes, and..

Blue line is another factory edge. need to rip a few strips to cover the edges….sometime. The plywood panel behind this case..

Became the top of the back. i’ll cut the remainder, once this huge thing is out of my shop. need to cut down one more panel..

Panel is 3/4×36 x 48”.....needs to be 3/4×27-3/8’’ x 48” will need a lot of room to make that cut. Then I can carry it up to the Kitchen, and install in to complete the back.

next up after that…doors. A glue-up of three 1×10 x 6’, split the panel down the middle, and have the Stanley 45 cut a matching half lap to close the two doors. Then 6 hinges to hang the dang things….Boss gets to paint the entire thing. I merely hand her the brush, and head for the shop..

Stay tuned, the “FUN” will begin when the case starts up the stairs…. R. Lee Ermy…cover your ears….
