That looks nice Bandit! A couple things....

Wasn't your daughter going to paint it? So, why stain and shellac?  Second, isn't that skinny drawer going to rub and wear the lower cabinet counter?

Oh, yah! I never think about it until we get slammed by an earthquake. You need some tie-backs for the book case. Those cleats will only snug it in place. Just about any rocker will fling it across the floor. I know.

She likes things dark coloured..so MAYBE if I stain and finish it...she won't want to paint it..I hope.  Ohio doesn't get much in the way of Earthquakes..., besides, where this will be going, the bookcase can't move very far...about like that one I made out of Ash a little while back.   Tucked into a corner.

I usually add a bit of tape under the drawer, so the drawer comes out just a hair off the surface....sometimes, just a few "thumbtacks" will do the job.. Cool
Show me a picture, I'll build a project from that

Build part is completed.   Just needs a top coat or two, and delivered.  

Health issues over the weekend.....resting up until they get things fixed.   Will have to wait a while on getting it finished up.  

Thanks for following along...hope it was interesting.

Posting as "Project"  unless the Daughter wants it shiney... Rolleyes Winkgrin  
   
Open the door to the Bookcase... Cool 
   
Close up of the front... Winkgrin 
   
Need to buy two more baskets....also, the main drawer gets a pair of baskets.. Cool  
   
Completed cupboard stands 77-1/4" tall....Might be a bit hard to keep that top clean Rolleyes  
   
Coat of Golden Oak stain, then about three coats of Amber Shellac.   Might just do... Confused

Any place on the upper drawer to install rollers or wheels?

None.  Not really needed, as the drawer is very light, won't be much weight going into ( bills, maybe) and I will just rub the bottom of the drawer sides with wax... Cool

Daughter stopped by today Uhoh .....and LOVED the new cupboard! Winkgrin Winkgrin Winkgrin

We had also added a pair of light gray baskets to go with the other two.   Daughter says the finish on the cupboard matches what is in the room, no need for any paint Cool  Still have to haul it to her place, and install it, no biggie....Get an Easter meal in the deal. Winkgrin

Seems this little project is a "hit" Cool
