Just wanted to post this before I take it to camp. We got a new camper and there wasn’t enough storage there, so I threw this together real quick. It is made out of some left over oak scraps. I never through anything away. The case is made from 3/4 inch birch plywood and veneered with oak. The doors were made to match the door panel on the refrigerator. I only had a depth of 7”, so it was strange building such a narrow cabinet. But, cheap non-the-less. I guess I should move back to some paying jobs instead of playing around.

Thanks, actually, I have a 12×30 deck with a pergula I was supposed to be building, as well as three cabinets. So, between my wife yelling about not having her deck back and the end of August coming soon…I suppose I should have been busy at work. But sometimes you just need to do something you want to do and not have to.

Very nice. I really like the raised panel doors.
