A very busy weekend on the woodworking front, our pantry is now a freestanding structure! Also I did some other stuff, too.
Last weekend, we did the first test fit (clamps to hold everything together). I realized that I had erred and not cut two of the required panels for the sides. Everything was put on hold until I could make it to the lumberyard and get more 1/2" maple ply. So, a few days later, I did. I also got another board of maple because I have a problem with impulse buying lumber, apparently?

Pocket screw pros:
- You have to be really, really careful to make sure you don't attach something out of square, etc.
- Lots of careful clamping required
- You can see them afterwards
After I had the sides assembled, I had to recruit A to help put the back and front on. This involved clamps.

|Wife for scale. The pantry is 0.91 wifes tall.|
|So much space for cereal.|
Still to come: a drawer, doors, shelves, and installing the top.
