Another piece made with my blind mortice and pocket screw construction method. This cabinet is desktop height (29") and is sized to accommodate most printers. This was originally designed for office use as a printer stand/cabinet, but I feel that the dimensions and look of the piece make it suitable for general furniture use.
The doors are attached with full overlay eurohinges, and the shelves are on adjustable pegs.
The cabinet was made from 3/4 inch plywood scraps that were lying around from other projects.
The eurohinge pockets and shelf peg holes were cut out directly on the CNC router. Screw and drill hole locator marks were also etched into the parts, so assembly was quite fast.
