| Build this country-style cupboard out of pine to match recent
styles in country furniture, or build it out of oak or walnut to match what we
used to call "Early American." What ever wood and finish you use,
you'll have a cupboard that is both attractive and functional.
The four drawers provide lots of storage space for small items, and the two
shelves with plate grooves are perfect for displaying special pieces of china
or your plate collection.
CONSTRUCTION. We built our Wall Cupboard out of butternut which can be
difficult to find. You might build this shelf out of pine or oak, or any wood
that would match your decor. (Butternut's grain is very similar to walnut, but
butternut is lighter and softer than walnut.) The overall size is 36-1/2"
wide x 9" deep x 30-7/8" high.
This project was originally published in Woodsmith No. 40.
