no previous part Part 1 of Jelly Cupboard series no next part

I started a build on a Jelly Cupboard for the house the other night. So far I have been able to get the Carcass built and dry fitted most of the components.

I used biscuits to join the sides together.

I milled all the parts something I might not do next time around since I ended up re cutting a couple of parts.

I setup all the mortises and routed them out. This was my first time doing this and did pretty well.. I only had to shim a couple of the shelves.

I am using ship lap joints for the back….

Thanks. Now if I can get the door built the the tin ordered and punched I can get it all painted and in the house. I was told tonight however my wife has no idea where she is going to put it. I am sure however that as soon as it crosses the threshold into the house that she will know the perfect spot.
