General Instructions

Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. 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

You will need to build two sides. I recommend a Kreg Jig here for the easiest and best edge to edge joint.

Step 2

Then just cover the back in plywood or planking of choice. This completes to two sides.

Step 3

Now we add the bottom shelf.

Step 4

Next, build the front and back frames.

Step 5

And then attach to front and back of nightstands.

Step 6

Build the top first, then attach to top.

Step 7

Next, build the door as shown above, and attach with hinges.

Step 8

And if you want, you can add a back.

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.
