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 exposed plywood edges before assembly.

Cut the pieces for the bottom and the sides. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the bottom. Also drill pocket holes in the top of the side pieces. Attach to the sides as shown in the drawing using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 2

Cut the pieces for the bottom supports. Drill pocket holes in one long end and secure to the bottom as shown using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Cut the piece for the trim support. Attach to the cabinet with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails through the bottom and sides into the support. Add a few brad nails through the support into the bottom supports.

Step 3

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

Step 4

Cut the pieces for the outer shelves. Drill pocket holes in each end. The shelves will be located ¾” back from the front edge of the sides. Attach with glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Cut the pieces for the middle shelves. Drill pocket holes in each end. These shelves are flush with the outside edge of the dividers. Attach to the dividers as shown using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 5

Cut the piece for the back. Attach using glue and 1-1/4” brad nails.

Step 6

Cut the piece for the front stretcher. Drill pocket holes in each end and attach to the dividers using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 7

Cut the piece for the top. The top overlaps the front and sides by ¾”. Attach to the cabinet using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws through the top of the sides and dividers into the top piece.

Step 8

Cut the pieces for the door frames. Assemble as shown using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. Attach to the cabinet with glue and 1-1/4” brad nails through the sides and dividers into the frames. Add a few nails through the frames into the shelves.

Step 9

Cut the pieces for the doors. Drill pocket holes in each end of the shorter pieces. They will have to be located so they do not interfere with the router when cutting the rabbets. Assemble with glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Using the router and a rabbeting bit, cut a 3/8” rabbet around the inside of the frame for the mirrors. Use a hammer and chisel to square the corners of the rabbet. Attach the mirrors using adhesive or a framing tab gun.

Step 10

Cut the pieces of baseboard. Secure the side pieces first using 1-1/4” brad nails, then attach the front. Attach the doors with the hinges, and attach the knobs to the doors.

Finishing Instructions

Fill any Screw, Nail or Pocket Holes, Sand and Finish as Desired.
