I was excited to find a new supply of locally-harvested Northwest hardwoods recently, and put some to use right away with this new Storage Cabinet I built for my chiropractor.
This cabinet features adjustable shelves and sliding doors, and was built from one slab of big leaf maple and veneered maple ply.
Dimensions: 18″ (d) x 72″ (t) x 42″
I’d love to hear your thoughts or suggestions.
Storage Cabinet #2
Big leaf maple slab. 8/4 x12 ft x 26 in.
Planning the cuts.
Breaking down the slab with the Festool track and saw.
I used the OF 1400 to cut the mortises. Very accurate and fast.
Dry assembling the side panels.
With the 42 in span of the fixed shelves, I decide to use 1-3/8 in loose tenon instead of dowels.
A must-have jig for cabinet makers. Shelf pin jig. I highly recommend this one because of its easy to use and accuracy.
This is where the real headache starts. Dry assembling all of the horizontal and vertical parts, planing for the clamping action. You only have 30 min.
105 hours later.

One of the best investment we ever made in the shop. Buy one if you can.
Yes, wine and table saw. I had to celebrate the moment. This project has been fun and very challenging for my woodworking skills.
