My workshop is my home away from home. Where I put something is where it will be later… so long as I remember. These pictures will show just how big projects can come from little spaces.

A local grocery store asked for me to build them magazine racks, but not the traditional magazine style. I’m not sure exactly how I’m going to be able to make all three cabinets at once but willing to give it a try.

There’s a corner unit as well. Its just a boxed unit to fill in the corner of the L-shaped display. One of the 3 cabinets will be the bottom of the L and the remaining two units will make up the top part of the L-shape.

Plywood has voids, which are empty cavities within the layers. You will never know they are there unless you cut into it or try to nail through it. You can buy void-less plywood, like Baltic Birch plywood, but for the size of these cabinets, it would be very expensive. Luckily the nailing here will never be seen.

So these are the ‘towers’ for the three cabinets. You may now be getting the idea of how these cabinets will be designed.
