Galley Cabinets and Drawers

This is my first crack at cabinets and drawers.  I have never done this before, so I am treating this as a "test". Meaning, if I fail miserably, I will rip it out, learn from it, and try again. No worries.

I picked the smallest cabinets in the galley to start with. This will NOT be a piece of art in woodworking joinery. I am going for a strong yet practical, easy to build, easy to install/remove design that will facilitate the various face frame decors/styles we are considering, It will use standard household stainless steel drawer runners (positive locking).

Design parameters so far:
  • top drawer, shallow, to hold silverware and utensils
  • middle two drawers, deep enough to hold canned and small jar items
  • bottom drawer, deep enough to hold pots and pans, up to the size of a large pasta pot.
If this is successful (enough) it will be used as a template for the remaining cabinets in the galley.

Wish me luck.
