Step 1

Side Trim

Attach the side trim to the outsides of the sides as shown above.

Step 2

Legs

Keeping the legs flush with the top, attach legs to the sides as shown above. Predrill holes if you are using screws.

Step 3

Shelves

The bottom shelf sits flush to the bottom. You can either add a second shelf or drill holes for shelf pins for an adjustable shelf. Glue and screw with either pocket hole screws or 2 1/2″ screws.

Step 4

Front/Back Trim

2 1/2″ screws and glue.

Step 5

Top

If you have a pocket hole system, build the top first. Otherwise, add a support 2×2 down the center and attach the top, screwing to the sides and the center support, minimizing gaps between boards. Start with the 1×2 flush to the back and work forward.

Step 6

Doors

When you cut your boards, make sure you measure the exact opening of your door, and leave 1/8 gap for a tight fit, 1/4″ (total gap, so that’s 1/8″ all the way around) for a roomier door. If you have a pocket hole system, build the door frame as shown above. You can use a countersink bit or wood dowels to build the door frame too. Otherwise, glue and nail to the back plywood. Keep in mind the allowance need for your hinges. Depending on the type of hinge that you are using, you may need to cut the plywood out around the hinge.

Finishing

Fill holes with wood filler and sand and finish as desired. Attach door with hinges followed by a handle.
