Though members of your family aren’t likely to store spices in a cabinet like this, you can bet that it will be an oft-requested item for you to build. So you might want to think about making more than one when you begin.

Mill the Case • Cut the sides and ends to size, then cut 1/2″ finger joints on the ends of each piece. You can make your own jig like the one decribed in the September 1998 issue (#104) in the tool chest article. Or you can purchase a commercial model. Next cut 1/4″ x 1/2″-wide dadoes on the sides and ends as located on the diagrams. Also cut a 1/4″ x 1/2″-wide rabbet on the back edge of each side for the back.

Dividers and Assembly • Next, cut the three dividers to size, and with the case dry-clamped together, check the dimensions of the dividers against your case. Trim them to fit, then cut 1/2″-wide bridle joints to fit the dividers together.
