A very nice site indeed. I have been building cabinets for 40 years and am still learning new things. There are for sure a few times i should have taken your advice. I would have been on the golf course sooner.

On your home office plans, what material did you use for the face frames and how did you crate the frame appearance on the sides of the base and uppers?

Hi Rich–the face frames are all pine, but if you can afford it and are planning to paint, poplar is a little more durable. The frame is made with the face frame and another board along with 1x3s. It’s hard to describe, but once I get the blog working ok again, I can write up a post with some pictures. Pictures make it so much easier! If you sign up for emails, you will get an email when I publish.

This is gorgeous. What is the depth of the base cabinets? I have a dining room I would like to convert into a home office as you have done.

Thanks Tina! The depth of the base cabinets is 16.25″. I’m planning on writing some more posts about this project and room once I get things cleaned up from moving the blog. If you subscribe to my emails, you’ll get notified when I publish something more.

hi I like the undersink organizer with the blue baskets. Did you make it or buy it somewhere? it is so cool. I want one! LOL.

Thanks Jamie! I made that under-sink organizer out of ply scraps from other project and bins from the Dollar Tree. I still love that project, but if I were to do it again I would use better bins. The ones I bought are flimsy and don’t work as well as I’d like. It’s a great beginner project if you’ve never built before!

Do you have plans available for the desk/bookshelves? It’s exactly what I’m looking to build. Thanks.

Hi John–I don’t have any plans that I officially drew up, sorry! If you have experience building cabinets, you could easily piece this together. It is basically cabinets with hutches above. I had a basic plan sketched together to begin with and modified as I went.

I am a human. This is a good web-sight and I hope you keep writing good articles about women carpenters. 2016 will be a good year for this industry.
