Who doesn’t need a little more storage space? Whether it’s in the woodshop like me, or anywhere else throughout your living space, small cabinets help to tuck away the clutter and keep things organized.
In this episode we’re making a simple, small cabinet from supplies you can easily pick up at just about any home center.
For this one I purchased a few “handi-panels” which are pre-glued and dimensioned boards that eliminate most of the milling we’d have to perform to get them ready for cutting and assembling.
I also purchased some adjustable “euro-style” hinges and a simple wooden knob for the door.
For joinery, it’s all about the “blind-rabbet” joint in the corners to assemble the box, but something as simple as pocket-hole joinery or even tongue and groove would work fine too.
Of course you could take a step further and use dovetail joinery or such to spruce it up even more.
The only real “decorative” feature on this simple cabinet is the raised panel on the door.
Originally I planned to leave it a flat panel, but then I wouldn’t have had a chance to free-hand the extra wide chamfer all around the edge with my skew rabbet plane.
Regardless of what you do with your small cabinet, this is a quick and easy project perfect for a single-day or leisurely weekend build.
