OVERVIEW Needed some storage for office supplies in our office/spare bedroom, as well as a night stand to put a small lamp and alarm clock for the futon.

GOALS Lots of storage for office/home supplies, quick construction, use up some scraps, modern clean lines

MATERIALS : 3/4” Purebond oak plywood, oak edge banding, 18” ball-bearing drawer slides from amazon, Rustoleum spray poly for the finish I got a case of @ 75% off. Used scrap birch plywood for the drawers, needed to get rid of a lot of small scraps.

CONSTRUCTION Built cabinet carcass using pocket holes, then butt joints glued and screwed together for the drawers, nothing fancy, but I got it together in a few evenings after work.
