My wife Laura wanted a cabinet to fit behind the basement bar. Her requirements were that it had to be able to hold a microwave,and a coffee-pot and have some shelves. The shelf on the left sits on wooden cleats and is removable. I built a 3 step bottle shelf on the right. This was my first attempt at making a cabinet. I’m not proud of it but I did learn a lot. I used a couple of pieces of old walnut veneered plywood I found and edge banded the ply with walnut I thickness planed and ripped. Finish is Minwax dark walnut stain and wipe-on poly. I do apologize for the photos but basement fluorescent lights and my camera don’t seem to agree. Thanks for looking.

Looks like a good first cabinet. The learning something is what helps, I am still trying to figure it out :)..
