How to Make a Wooden Cubby

July 26, 2016


This week my neighbor asked me if I could make her a cubby. My design called for 2- 2’x4′ sheets of 3/4″ thick plywood. Then I cut all my pieces to their correct size base off my cut list. After I had all my pieces cut, I used a series of rabbets and dados to connect all the pieces. I used wood glue and nails to assemble the entire project and once it was all dry, I sanded everything to a very smooth finish. If this project is going in your house, then I would highly recommend painting it. However, if it’s for your shop, then the wooden look will be fine!

Cut List:

2- 11″x21.5″ (Top and Bottom)

2- 11″x15.75″ (Sides)

2- 10.25″x10.25″ (Shelves)

1-10.25″x15.75″ (Divider)

1-15.75″x20″ (Back)
