My wife asked me to build a linens cabinet for her, and this is what I came up with. Built with pine, 30-1/2 inches wide by 13-7/8 inches deep by 67-3/4 inches high. It has three spacious shelves on the top and two on the bottom, plus a roomy drawer in the middle. She already has it filled and wants me to make another one.

Looks very nice.
I must comment about the inconvenient doors on the bottom. I feel that everything in this world is better with drawers on the bottom half so you don’t have to stand on your head or fall to your knees to see what got jammed to the back of the cabinet. Maybe add some pull out shelves on full extension drawer glides???

It’s a beautiful cabinet. It sure looks great for just being pine. I’ve been trying to build another one for my wife for the last 5 years but she still like the one I built 30 years ago. I guess they last forever.

I want to thank everyone for their kind remarks. Someone commented on the “inconvenient doors on the bottom.” I designed this cabinet specifically for my wife, who is only 4 feet 9 inches tall. It’s perfect for her use.

Just a suggestion- make a fold-out step on the next one. I can’t even see the top shelf in some cabinets, and I’m an average height man. I bet she thanks you!
