We are ripping apart our laundry room (as you can tell!!!) and I decided I would abscond with at least 1/2 of it and make it a finishing room. Before I do that, I needed some cupboards. I used plans from Danny Proulx’s Kitchen Cabinet book (3/4” plywood) and made my first corner cupboard and a side one.

I am very proud of my mortise and tenon door. Even with crappy hinges, it hangs straight and the door closes. I will make another door (half size, to conceal the jars) later on and also another side cupboard to house my growing collection of wood project books.

The last picture is just to illustrate what a b*!#[email protected] this was to put up. There was a ton of swearing involved. The walls (not the cabinets – I swear!!!) are quite crooked. Tons of shims.

The faces are in pine, which I used because I needed to be economical. I need the practice. I got really peeved when a knot in the stile decided to split but I glued it back and carried on.

The side is not finished, because we have to move an electrical outlet first. Priorities…

Great learning experience. I will post phase II as soon as I am finished (I am starting to get distracted by a desire to make cutting boards!!!! I can’t wait until this weekend!).
