Made three of the shelf/drawer units and installed. Each unit was made in two sections (top shelves/bottom drawers) so that they could be carried more easily in older home winding stairs. Cut into existing wall under the eve of roof, added header above and supports between each unit to carry load of header. Customer hired a painter to finish, Cases were made from 3/4 Birch 10ply with 3/4 poplar frame faces and drawers. Blum full extension drawer slides and movable drawer separators in drawers from 1/2 Birch ply. Top shellves 12 inches deep and drawers 23 inches deep to fit under eve.

I looked at your projects and you’re doing a great job. As you do more try to push yourself into harder and harder projects to stretch your abilities and to push you to use more and more advanced techniques. Visit some cabinet shops and see how they construct their projects and try to incorporate some of their methods in your projects. I keep trying different methods that I have seen at LJ, books, mags and even in furniture stores. If at first you don’t succeed, don’t give up and try again. I’m still far from being good, just fair. I am always learning from my betters. Good luck and keep making those projects.
