Today’s plan is another that will surely reduce the scrap pile! All it takes are a few pieces of 1/2″ plywood and a scrap of 1/4″ plywood. The embellishments are up to you!
- Scraps of 1/2″ plywood (or a quarter sheet of 1/2″ plywood)
- 1-1/4″ brad nails
- Scrapbooking paper & spray adhesive
- Embellishments (I used galvanized ribbon and number plates from the scrapbooking section of the hobby store)
- Two – 5-3/4″ x 19″ – Top & Bottom
- Two – 5-3/4″ x 22-1/2″ – Sides
- Two – 5-3/4″ x 18″ – Horizontal Dividers
- Two – 5-3/4″ x 22-1/2″ – Vertical Dividers
- One – 1/4″ plywood at 19″ x 23-1/2″ – Back
1. Cut the pieces for the top, bottom, and sides. Assemble as shown using glue and 1-1/4″ brad nails.
2. Cut the pieces for the dividers. Cut the notches with a jigsaw and assemble as shown. Insert into the box and secure with brad nails through the top, bottom, and sides.
3. Use the spray adhesive to secure the scrapbooking paper to the back. Attach the back to the box using the brad nails.
4. Finish as desired and add any embellishment! I used oak plywood and didn’t stain it. Purebond plywood is beautiful and has fabulous grain! I used Rust-Oleum’s Ultimate Polyurethane in Soft Touch Matte to seal it. I used scrapbooking paper that looked like weathered wood for the back of the cabinet. I also used galvanized ribbon (tacked on with 3/4″ brad nails) from Hobby Lobby, as well as Tim Holtz number plates for the front.
Until next time,
