General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain.

Step 1
First build your two ends. These are identical, and all edges are flush to outsides.

Step 2
These are for the drawer slides. Just nail and glue in place.

Step 3
Now the front and back trim. It is very important to space these pieces exactly as shown to keep distance between drawers even.

Adjust for square – this is very important.

Step 4
Build your drawer boxes to suit your openings. The drawers must be very square.

Step 5
Install drawers starting at the bottom and working upward. You will need to inset drawers 3/4″ to allow for drawer faces.

Step 6
Then attach your drawer faces to the drawer boxes with glue and 1 1/4″ finish nails. TIP: attach hardware first! Keep an even 1/8″ gap on all sides of the drawer faces.

Step 7
And then the top! You can build top first and then attach – it’s up to you.

Step 8
And finally add the caster wheels to the base.

Finishing Instructions
Fill all holes with wood filler and let dry. Apply additional coats of wood filler as needed. When wood filler is completely dry, sand the project in the direction of the wood grain with 120 grit sandpaper. Vacuum sanded project to remove sanding residue. Remove all sanding residue on work surfaces as well. Wipe project clean with damp cloth. It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
