If you’re looking to build a small wood cabinet that can be used to store various things, you should think about building a jelly cupboard. The jelly cupboard is a cabinet that was popular in rural areas during the mid-1800’s and was used for storing preserves.

You’ll want to use a circular saw in order to cut your pieces out of the cut list found here and then glue and nail them using a pneumatic nailer and 1 ¼ nails. Once you’ve put all the pieces together, you’ll want to put on the front by installing the hinges and the knob.
