Hey Everyone, it’s been a while since I’ve actually been in the garage a.k.a. “my workshop” building things. But I am now back at it. I found myself in the position were I didn’t have any place to store small appliances and my pantry space was very limited. In fact, I have one split cabinet that is “pantryesque.” But its not a true pantry space. I absolutely hate storing things on my counters. So I headed to the most inspirational place on the web….. Pinterest hahaha. But surprisingly as I scrolled through my Facebook feed the latest build by Corey of Sawdust 2 Stitches popped up and it was absolutely perfect. It was sleek, simple and super practical with loads or storage space. My space, however, could only accommodate something half the size. Here’s what I did to modify Sawdust 2 Stiches’ Free Standing Pantry plans to fit a smaller space.


2- 3/4″ plywood sheets (sanded or unsanded depends on weather you will paint or stain your cabinet)
1- 1/2″x 2″x4″ sanded project plywood (For the door)
1/4″ plywood for back panel
1 1/4″ Pocket Screws
1″ pocket Screws
5 – 1×2x8
2- 1×3x8
wood glue
4- 3″ Swivel Casters (2 with wheel locks)
Door hinges
2 – 1/2-in Dia Copper Plated Steel Bell Hangers
5/8 wooden dowel
Gripper Primer Sealer
1 qt. #MQ4-17 Pageant Green Interior/Exterior Paint
1 qt. #MQ3-23 Statuesque Interior/Exterior Paint

Cut list

3/4″ Plywood for the cabinet sides and shelves
2- 19″ x 75 1/2″ – Sides of cabinet
3 – 20″x 9 1/2″ – Upper shelves
2 – 19″x 20″ – Lower shelves
1 – 21 1/2″ x 75 1/2″- Back panel (can use 1/2″ or 1/4″ plywood for the back panel)

Face Frame

2 – 1×2 cut to 75 1/2″
2 – 1×3 cut to 18 3/4″
2 – 1×2 cut 18 3/4″
3 – 1×2 cut 20″ (Attached to the upper interior 3 shelves)

For the Door

1/2″ plywood cut to 16″ x 43 1/4″
2 – 1×3 cut to 48 1/4″
2 – 1×3 cut 16″


Kreg Jig

Thank you so much everyone! And Richard thank you, yes I’ve been been building things but small items that weren’t exactly fit for sharing on this site. But now I’m about to taking on the remodeling of my dining room. So I believe I’ll have a bit more to share with you all in the coming month or two.
