Topic tags/keywords: cupboard plans

I am looking into building a cupboard and found what looks like a great set of plans on the woodarchivist website. The problem is that a lot of the measurements are to small and blurry to read. Does anyone have a copy of these plans that are more legible to read? I have pasted the link to the plans below. Thanks in advance for your assistance.

I could read most fine. What parts are not easy for you? Get the base configuration of the case and back and drawers. go from there.

My method when using plans, is to start with base construction dimensions. Once I get the case built, I use as built to get the rest of the figures. I learned a valuable lesson cutting parts from a cutlist then assembling. Something gets off along the way and error tolerances can add up quickly. Now, I do as I go, and it works so much better. At the end of the day if the final piece is a tad bigger/smaller, won’t make much of a difference.

You can blow up the images in your browser
but pressing ctrl and + several times.

Further the images can be downloaded and
enlarged in an image editor. I use

Thanks for all of your responses so far. I have tried blowing it up in my browser and Microsoft paint. I have also tried using OCR software to see if it can recognize the analyze the text to make it clearer. I have had no luck with all of them. I can read most of the whole numbers, but the fractions are quite a bit fuzzy and unreadable in certain cases. So far the only suggestion that I can follow is the one from bonesbr549 where I will have to build the carcass and then wing it from there.

Have your say...
