About This Project

I needed a project, my daughter and son-in-law wanted a cabinet that had to be custom built to fit in their small space. It was just what I needed. Nothing simple for my 1st time, oh, no! I wanted doors and drawers. Learned a lot, and know I have a lot more to learn. The importance of getting things square is probably #1 on my list. I thought I'd start parking my car in the garage, but this was too much fun - the tools are staying!

Estimated Cost: 
Probably should cost about $175, but I probably spent $100 more with all my mistakes and changes!
Estimated Time Investment: 
Week Long Project (20 Hours or More)
Required Skill Level: 
Starter Project
Type of Wood: 
oak ply - but should have used something that painted better
Finish Used: 
Spray paint, 3 coats of espresso, matt finish. Then 3 coats of semi gloss spray on poly.

How nice of you

I just noticed your nice comment. They do love it. I might have to build them something new though - I've gotten much better at this since I did this one! It's still fun!
