Six Shelf Cabinet: A How-To | Killer b. Designs



Six Shelf Cabinet: A How-To

I’m so excited to be sharing a tutorial today! I feel like its been too long since I’ve posted a project. Today’s tutorial is for a simple six shelf cabinet. I didn’t plan on adding it to my kitchen plan, but then this happened:

It seems I mis-measured my countertop and cabinet section along this wall. We were left with a 12″ gap to the left of the refrigerator. So, what to do? Well, make it look built in! For about $50 I now have a handy place for veggie storage and a spot to stash the mail. It was definitely one of those “happy accidents” and I’m really glad that it worked out this way. Ready to see how I built it? Here’s how!


• 4 – 1x12x6
• 3 – 1x2x6
• kreg jig and screws
• nails, sandpaper, paint/stain

Cut List:
• 3 – 1×12 @ 72″ (no need to cut your 6 footers)
• 7 – 1×12 @ 10 3/8″
• 2 – 1×2 @ 72″
• 7 – 1×2 @ 9 5/8″

Step 1 – Drill pocket holes on both sides of one 1x12x6 and attach the two side pieces.


Step 2 – Attach top and bottom shelves to complete the box


Step 3 – Measure every 12″ and attach your 5 shelves to make six even compartments


Step 4 – Use glue and nails to attach your trim, starting with the tall sides

That’s it! Now sand and finish as desired. I sanded with 150 grit and painted it grey to match the rest of the cabinetry. Now it looks like a fancy built-in and not an “oops!” project.

Final measurements are 72″ tall, 12 3/4″ wide and 12″ deep. A handy tip is to cut as you go and not in advance. That way you get exactly what you need and nothing is slightly too short. This is especially handy if your cabinet is slightly off-square like mine :)

    Looks great. It looks like it was always meant to be there. I can not wait to get started on mine. After the very long list I already have and it’s only the 10th of January. But I wouldn’t want it any other way. Love your blog!

      Thank you! It was so much fun to plan and execute, and will be a blast to finish out too

    Killer I think it is really a great idea. So many uses. What I am surprised about is that you told us it was not perfectly square! We all know that all of our projects come out perfectly square,, Mine always do!! (chuckle chuckle). Keep the news coming.
