Introduction: Cabinet

All purpose cabinet...I'm making a paint cabinet.

Step 1: Work Area

Get all the tools needed for the job....

Drill
Measuring tape
Clamps

Step 2: Frame

Construct sides. I'm not providing specific measurements because I made mine to fit a specific area. Build yours for your area.

Step 3: Construct Cabinet Body

I added plywood into the pine frames. This is a garage paint cabinet, so I didn't use expenses wood, but I still wanted it to look nice.

Step 4: Top

I used 3/4 inch plywood for the top. I screwed the top. From inside the cabinet. I also sanded down the edges to give the cabinet softer edges.

Step 5: Butt Hinges

Measure desired area for butt hinge. I cut a scrap piece of wood about 3-5 inches long and used it to measure the hinge placement from the top and bottom and each side.

Mark areas and route out the area. Used a chisel for the corners.

Step 6: Stain

I added 2 coats of stain. Let it dry for 24 hours.

Step 7: Polyurethane

I brushed on 2 coats of polyurethane. I sanded lightly between coats.

Step 8: Filled and Done!!!

I added my paint supplies place cabinet in it final resting area. Works perfect!
