For this project i've built a particular piece of furniture to set in an angle in a bathroom beside the sink and between the door housing and the sidewall. I was bonded in specific size to build that and could never find some industrial piece to fit in. I used some ash plywood for the bottom cabinet that i painted in white and prefinished red oak for shelves.

I started building the cabinet with ash ply and poket holes to join pieces together and also edging the side cuts of panels. Put clamps on and set it dry for a night.

In the meantime glue set, i prepared oak pieces reclaimed from a prefinished parquet of 10 mills thick, so i glued two sheets together since to have a 20 mills and made shelves and edging ,as always, side cut. I didn't make any other process on shelves because this material was prefinished,so it don't need sanding ,staining of finishing.

Then i passed on the upper side and made three pieces 40x40 mm of spruce to make columns that hold shelves and cut at 45 degrees one of the angles ,that one in front of the operator.

I cut at the size shelves and cut the angles to fit them against the columns.

Then i set all shelves in place and befor that, i cut at 45 degrees the sharp edges in lower right side of the shelves to make design smooth.

I painted cabinet and columns in white, in particular with two coats of primer and two of white nail varnish for the external surfaces and with transparent sealer for internal and set it dry.

Then i mounted everthing in place ,gear and shelves.

Finally i set it in place in the bathroom and it fit perfectly.:)

    Excellent work! Are you a carpenter or have background carpentry skills. Every space is going to be different. I love this and living in an old house from an era that didn't care about utilizing every space. I could really benefit from this but it looks intimidating. You make it sound so easy. I'm not convinced it's that easy 😮🤔😬
