looking for cabinets like this--but not as pricey!

I have been searching for shallow depth base cabinets and finally found these at pottery barn. I need four or five and don't want to spend a ton.
here's the link, I'm looking specifically at the one on the bottom left.

thanks if you have any leads for ones like them.

Found this plan for you.

thanks, that's very helpful. I don't have the skills or tools or place to even attempt such a project, so will have to buy them premade. I'm just trying to balance being thrifty with getting that precious storage space!

RE: looking for cabinets like this--but not as pricey!

I haven't been to your link yet, but I have several different depth cabinets.
My kitchen & MB are normal 24" deep.
My window cabinets (sent to me in error) are 21".
My kitchen credenza are 21" and
My MBR wall of cabinets are 18" deep.

I either collected bathroom cabinets for the 21" depth, (made, which doesn't count for you) or ordered them from THe Cabinet when I had the money. Slow going for me, but you don't need that many.

Just some ideas.
Sometimes you gotta pay for what you want.

RE: looking for cabinets like this--but not as pricey!

The PB ones are pretty darn reasonable priced actually, because they're import. In my cheapest cabinet line in oak that can do what you're asking about, a 6"W wine cubby that is reduced in depth to 18" is $460. For a 6"W cabinet. Not kidding. If you were to be OK with the standard 24" depth, you could save the $120 charge to reduce the depth, and that 6" cabinet would only be $340. And then you'd still have to screw a series of them together to be wider than 6", and apply the toekick.

Now, the 18"x18"x18" X shaped "wine cube" that we show on the end of our island here is only $260 in oak, but you'd still have to join them together, create a toekick platform, and apply toekick.

I'd suggest you buy a few tools and learn how to use them. Really. It will save you a lot of money in the long run. It's not as hard as you think to be able to do the plan linked above.

RE: looking for cabinets like this--but not as pricey!

we live full time in our rv, so I'm being honest when i say we have no place to stash tools, nor a place to use them. I've been calling around for a week trying to get a carpenter out here to get this project done, but so far no one will come this far out for such a small job,
a trip to a home depot type place is an all day event, so i really do require premade cabs like the pottery barn ones.
i have a call into a cabinets to go place, and am still looking for ones like the pottery barn ones at a better price. if i cant find them in another week i'll bite the bullet and order a pair and finally get some items out of boxes and out away--YAY!!!
