comment How can I fix this gap in my kitchen counter?
Looks like at least one of the screws holding the cabinet to the wall, is in the upper right corner above the triangular blocking. You can see it in the first image inside the cabinet, if you look close enough.

comment What are the differences between these types of small-dimension lumber?
this pdf might be helpful. The American Softwood Lumber Standard (PDF) might also be useful. Lowes also has a good Lumber Buying Guide Look for the stamp, that will tell you the truth about the lumber.

comment What are the differences between these types of small-dimension lumber?
Just a note on the linked to plans. Drywall screws are for attaching drywall to studs, and should not be used for attaching wood to wood. Use 1 1/2" wood screws, or 1 1/2" deck screws instead. If the shelves are in a basement or garage, I'd lean towards deck screws, but wouldn't pay a premium for them over wood screws. Since you're working with smaller lumber, I'd also drill pilot holes to avoid splitting.

This is what tankless water heaters are for. Only heat the water you use.

comment What is the proper way to install a junction box above a dropped ceiling?
@SpeedyPetey You're right, should have zoomed in closer. In either case, the other box does not have clamps.

comment Should I use conduit for a less than 10' run of 6/3 THHN in my garage
It sounds to me like the cabinet is not used for storage, or livable space. So I'd say any cable in there is already protected from physical damage. Since it's a cable, and it's in a "protected" area, I wouldn't think conduit would be necessary.

Keep in mind that code, is a minimum safety standard. There's almost never a problem building above minimum standards.
