My first cabinet build

Submitted by lawson4450 on Sat, 10/06/2012 - 18:31

I always wanted to try building something and wanted to actually build some cabinets for the dining room to use basically for china and a buffet. I found the plans on here and went to town. I made the smaller cabinet first just to see if i can make it and well it worked fine. So I took the plan and made a second cabinet but made it slightly bigger because I decided to place the cabinets together and put them in our kitchen. It was also an anniversary present for the wife since we cant redo the kitchen and we need some more counter space I made these to fit under a window and replace a set of metal shelves. The doors I just made them no real plan just tried something and it worked. So happy wife, happy wife and I had a good time. As a firefighter/emt this is a nice get away from the stresses of my life and as long as the wife is happy then she will let me continue to work on this stuff. Thanks Ana for the plans I have a few more planned for the future.
