UPDATE: I created an updated plan with custom sizing and simplified design here.
Free plans to build a single open storage base.
Part of the Cubby Storage Collection, this open base is part storage, part bench, and a whole lot of cuteness! Works with the drawer plan or the cubby hutches. Also available is a media console to create a media storage wall. See all plans in the Cubby Storage Collection.
1 sheet of Hardwood Plywood or MDF (see here for a post on choosing your wood types)
A) 2 – 3/4″ Plywood or MDF @ 15″ x 21″ (Sides)
Cut all your boards. Make sure you cut straight boards, especially your plywood. Be aware of your saw blade clearance when marking out your cuts. Use a square or see the HOW-TO section for a video on checking for square. Always use glue and 2″ nails unless otherwise directed. IF YOU ARE USING MDF, YOU MUST USE SPECIAL CABINET SCREWS. Measure and mark your board before fastening.
