We had this odd empty space at the end of our kitchen counter. I think the previous owner had a freezer with a top opening lid. We decided to build a storage cupboard to hold the vacuum and cleaning supplies. But after all the home improvement we've done around here we needed a place to house some of the work materials as well. Plus, it gave us a chance to use the other wardrobe door.
I drew up some plans (the photo of the paper is useful, right?) and had 18 mm (3/4 inch) plywood cut at the lumberyard. I used the Kreg Jig, screws (I think 1 1/4 inch, maybe 1 1/2 inch) and wood glue to join the plywood. Then the handyman adjusted the wardrobe door and attached it.
There are a few short shelves along the back of the cupboard for supplies. But I wanted to leave a large enough space in the front for easy access to the vacuum, mop and brooms.
