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

Cut the pieces for the legs, the front frame pieces, the back panel and the back stretcher. Set the Kreg jig for ¾” material and drill pocket holes in each end of the frames pieces and the stretcher. Drill pocket holes at three sides of the back to attach to the legs and to attach the top.

Assemble the front and back frames as shown using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 2

Cut the pieces for the side panels. Drill pocket holes along three edges to attach to the legs and to attach the top. Attach to the legs using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 3

Cut the piece for the shelf. Attach to the front frame and back stretcher using glue and countersunk 1-1/4” screws.

Step 4

Cut the pieces for the slide supports. Attach to the side panels using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. The supports will be flush with the inside edge of the legs.

Cut the pieces for the dividers. Drill pocket holes as shown, then assemble using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Attach the dividers to the inside of the cabinet at the spacing shown using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws.

Step 5

Cut the pieces for the top. Spread glue on the surface of one of the pieces. Position the other piece on top and wiggle it a little to create suction, then clamp until dry.

Position on the cabinet with 6” hanging over each side, and flush at the front and back. Attach using glue and 2” pocket hole screws through the pocket holes drilled in the top edges of the sides and back.

Step 6

Cut the pieces for the drawer boxes. Drill pocket holes in all four edges of the bottoms, as well as the shorter ends of the sides. Assemble as shown using glue and 1-1/4” pocket hole screws. Install the drawer slides according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Make any necessary adjustments.

Step 7

Cut the pieces for the drawer fronts. Cut a decorative edge on the fronts, if desired. Attach the drawer fronts to the drawer boxes. For another easy tutorial, click here.
