    Both are correct, depending on how it is used. 

    If Bob was putting shelves in the cupboard, he put in the shelves that belonged there. 

    If Bob was putting shelves INTO the cupboard, he may have added shelves where there were none before. 

    Both can be correct, and both can be interchanged, depending on context.

    To answer your question, "The carpenter put shelves in the cupboard" is correct, "put shelves into" doesn't work somehow. 

    However, these are also valid:

    "The carpenter added shelves to the cupboard."

    "The carpenter built shelves into the cupboard."

    Both appear to be grammatically correct, but I think that "in the cupboard" sounds better.
