Project Information

Well I'm no cabinet maker but the woman said she wanted something for the laundry room. So as sort of a joke I started glueing up all the pressure treated scraps and leftovers. There was no plan or anything like that. Our laundry is in a semi open salt air location in the back of the house so anything that goes down there is in a pretty hostile environment. Ergo the PT. As luck would have it, I found the top sitting at the dump. It looked like someone cut a tractor trailer load of limes on it. Knife marks everywhere. I didn't think it would ever sand out. Turns out the wife likes it so she says "I want that for under the TV. You can't put that in the laundry room " Lol we will see if it holds up until I come up with something maybe a little nicer.

Turned out very nice. Bonus points for using scraps.

It's a great cabinet. Don't look like it was just glued together but carefully planned and constructed.

The box joints on the kick plate were a nice touch.

What's the top made of? It matches the wood perfectly.

Best Regards,

Believe it or not James, that's a piece of corian that I took home from the dump. Looked like someone had been using it for a cutting board for years. Deep cutting marks all over it. I sanded it out starting with eighty grit on the orbital and finished at four or five hundred by hand. Thanks very much for the compliments.
Edit: I was just fooling around with those box joints at the end of the the project. Wanted to try the frued set I picked up for the table saw
