We're building a pantry in a small kitchen opening (about 1' depth, 6.5' height) and the original construction framing is anything but straight.
Nice cabinet-grade plywood is being used. Unfortunately there are gaps because the plywood was not shimmed before being nailed to the existing framing.
My contractor plans to insert thin strips to fill the gaps.
I am considering asking for him to take off the installed plywood, shim as necessary, and install again, since the thin strips may look obviously out of place.
Or, we can use veneer to cover up the entire surface area, including strips/gaps, but this adds even more work and would cover up the nice plywood.
How would you approach this?
