Fits snugly in a space next to our new kitchen. We decided keeping recycling on the countertop was unattractive, so it all now goes into this big drawer piece. Curved shelves on the side match the custom shelves in the kitchen corners, which this sits right next to.

Pine and some ply. Learned more about finish, and sanded like crazy. Came out better than the previous project (table). Was much more complicated and required less error. First project w/ my new (used) table saw (Ryobi BT3000)

Wow! This is a nice cabinet. I particularly like the fact that you cut and shaped the side shelves so no one will bump on them (besides the fact this is part of the kitchen design). This is a great design. And by the way, I love your floor boards. This looks like a beautiful country kitchen too. Congrats and thanks for sharing. Finally, welcome to LJ’s.

@Bricofleur—Many thanks. Our house is a 1913 rowhouse, and the floors are heart of pine—all original throughout the place. Had them refinished a few months ago when we bought the house and are very happy with them!

I love the design and it’s purpose. This would be perfect in my house. I going to add it to my favs for future reference.
