Instructions

Read through the entire set of instructions and all comments before beginning this project. If you print out or save our plans, be sure to check back before starting your build, to be sure you have the most up to date set of plans. Use glue to secure your joints and Consider Painting or Staining individual sections prior to assembling. This makes the paint application virtually flawless. Coat with a spray on Poly or Wipe on Poly to protect your finish and your piece and it will last for ages. Adhere to all safety standards and guidelines, and be sure you follow safety protocol throughout your build. If you are unsure about whether you are building safely, run a quick online search for the tool or technique you are using.

Step 1

Edge banding should be applied to all exposed areas of plywood before assembly.

Cut the pieces for the legs, side frames, and side panels. Set the Kreg jig for 1-1/2” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the frame pieces, as well as the top end of the legs.

Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in the plywood panel as shown. Attach the panel to the side frame pieces using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Attach the side panel assembly as shown to the legs using glue and pocket hole screws. Use 2” pocket hole screws through the frame pieces into the legs and use 1-1/4” pocket hole screws through the side panels into the legs.

Step 2

Cut the pieces for the Bottom aprons. Drill pocket holes in each end and attach to the legs using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 3

Cut the piece for the back. Drill pocket hole screws as shown. Attach to the legs and the back apron using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 4

Cut the piece for the bottom. Drill pocket holes as shown and attach to the bottom aprons using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. The face of the shelf should be flush with the top of the aprons.

Cut the pieces for the bottom supports. Attach to the aprons using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. The supports should fit up against the back side of the bottom.

Step 5

Cut the pieces for the dividers. Cut the notch as shown using a jigsaw. When drilling pocket holes, note that there will be a left and a right so that the pocket holes are hidden in the section where the drawers are located.


Step 6

Cut the piece for the top apron. Drill pocket holes at each end and attach to the cabinet using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 7

Cut the pieces for the shelves. Drill pocket holes at the sides and back, then attach to the cabinet as shown using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Cut the pieces for the drawer dividers. Drill pocket holes at the sides and back also and attach to the cabinet using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.


Step 8

Cut the piece for the top. Attach using glue and pocket hole screws through the legs and back into the top piece. Use 1-1/2” pocket hole screws through the legs and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws through the back.

Step 9

Cut the pieces for the door frames. Drill pocket holes in the shorter pieces as well as the piece for the panel. Attach the panels to the shorter pieces using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws, then attach the assembly to the longer frame pieces using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.


Step 10

Cut the pieces for the drawer boxes. Assemble as shown using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. Attach the drawer slide hardware according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Make any necessary adjustments. For an easy tutorial on how to do this, click here.
