Pantry Cabinet 4

Assembled cabinet base standing up after all screw holes have been plugged:

I propped the door frames in the cabinet opening to figure out how everything will fit, including the piano hinges.

Below is the base cabinet with adjustable shelves inserted. Miracles do happen; all those peg holes I drilled actually line up.

Below are the door shelf units set into the cabinet the way they will sit when they are installed on the backs of the doors. I purposely left space between them so each shelf unit could swing out without hitting the other shelf unit. Now that I see everything set into place, I think this will work with the left shelf unit (the shallower side); it looks like the the right shelf unit probably won't swing out unless the left door is opened as well.

Here are the shelf units propped as they should look when the cabinet doors are open. (The right shelf unit is sitting on the floor instead of being propped up to its proper height because the JayBee's ceiling joist was in the way.)

Next up: attaching the doors to the shelf units, and installing the piano hinges.

Bear likes to get in the middle of things...and he leaves everything I work on covered with fur, thank you very much.

At 6:30 this morning, there was a quick series of loud cracks and a thump. A huge willow tree just fell over! It missed both the garage and the JayBee, thankfully, but the problem isn't over. The huge branches are propped upright on my septic field. (They look like trees standing there!) They need to be cleared away, but I think they pose a hazard to anyone who gets close. Hopefully any birds, squirrels, chipmunks, etc., that were living in the tree are okay. Oh, and I don't need high winds here anytime soon.

That big patch of sky on the left used to be filled with the willow tree and its foliage.
