Pantry Cabinet 3

So many holes to drill! Since I want the shelves in the back of the cabinet to be adjustable, I had a gazillion peg holes to drill. I was not happy with the first holes I drilled. They came out too ragged...

...so I adjusted my technique. I was happier with the results after that.

I do realize that, if I was not drilling in soft pine, making crisp holes would be easier. Check out how well they came out when I drilled through rock-hard knots.

I don't even want to know how many holes I drilled in both sides of these boards!

I wasn't only drilling holes for shelf pegs. I pre-drilled all the holes needed for the cabinet-assembly screws, and for installing the casters on the bottom of the cabinet.

Finally, I could assemble the cabinet.

Next, I have a lot of holes to plug, and cabinet doors to install.
