There is always a spot for a wall cabinet, especially a small one. This piece, a little more than a foot wide, is made of butternut, an underused, medium-toned wood that works easily. Most of the design and construction energy is spent on attractive doors with glass to show off nice-looking spice bottles and create more interest.
Because this cabinet was destined for a kitchen, the inside is designed to accommodate spices, but the same-sized cabinet could hold anything from pottery to small books. The shelves, in this case, are spaced to fit off-the-rack spice bottles, with the bottom shelf roomy enough for larger, bulk-sized decanters. The tilting drawer at the bottom is made to fit large packages of tea.
When it comes to construction, the simplest answers are often best. On this small, vertical cabinet, the case could have been dovetailed but why spend the time when countersunk and plugged screws would do.
