    Default Quick and easy cabinet

    Went looking for wood to make an easy to build cabinet and ended up buying shelving material. For the sides and top, only the length had to be cut.. It has a smooth finish that will look good after painting.

    Shelving:
    (2) 47.8 x 9.8" (sides)
    (1) 23.8" x 9.8" (top)
    (2) 23.8" x 7.8" (machine shelf and ball boxes)

    Melamine edge tape.

    Other materials I had: 2" x 10", 1/4" plywood, wood screws, dowels, gorilla glue.

    Cost ~ $30

    I like that!! Nice sleek modern design!!



    We used shelving too for our wall mount cabinet, but it worked out a bit more expensive because we used the bevelled edge type

    Shelving provides a great surface for paint or stain, creating a nice even finish

    Found out the hard way shelving material is a pain to paint. I decided to stick some shelf paper on it instead. Here's the finished product. I think 9 drums looks pretty good in there.

    Your cabinet looks great! Thanks for posting. I'm thinking about building a Pachinko Cabinet for my Fever Queen and I have some left over white shelving material that similar to use. Can I ask how you put yours together? Nuts n bolts? screws? wood glue work? Thanks for any additional insight!

    Wow! It's been a long time since I made this. Had to go look at it to see.

    Since it's shelving material, I used dowels & glue to hold everything together where I didn't want screws to show.

    The shelf the machine sits on has dowels reinforced with angle brackets from the bottom side for strength.

    I left the top unglued after putting the ball feed box on it. so that it fits on the sides with dowels to hold it in place (can post a pic if you like). The reason for this was that it makes it easier to change out the machine if I ever want to.

    The machine frame is screwed from the inside to the cabinet sides.

    I originally planned for this to be painted with crackle paint. Had I known then that it would be covered with the shelf paper, I would have just drilled and installed screws from the outside, much less work!
