  • Step 1: Breakdown Material/ Mill Stock

    Begin by collecting your materials for the job. Pull all of the nails if you're using reclaimed lumber. Flatten and joint each part to the cut list in the plans.

    Step 2: Glue Up Parts

    Once all of your rough cuts are square, glue up your panels. Start with the top, bottom, and two sides along with the back support. Once the panels dry cut and flatten them to final size and dimensions in the plans.

    Step 3: Joinery

    Mark and layout all of your joinery for the carcass assembly. Cut using the technique of your choice. I use my Domino XL. After clamping move onto the back panels .

    Step 4: Back Panels

    Re- saw or mill your back panel material of choice while the carcass dries. Cut your rabbets in the carcass and in the panels. Use the interior measurement in the carcass for your back panel measurement. Place panels and attach with glue and brad nails

    Step 5: Door & Shelf Assembly

    Rough cut door and shelf materials from the cut list. Assemble using glue and clamps for the shelves. Brad nails for the doors.

    Step 6: Trim and Molding

    Cut all of your trim for the top and bottom according to the cut list. I use the carcass for reference to create my moulding. Cut a 1/4" Chamfer on all moldings. Cut mitres and assemble with glue and 23g brads.

    Step 7: Sliding Hardware

    Refer to plans for full walk thru on hardware assembly. Use parts in cut list to create DIY hardware.

    Step 8: FINISH!!

    Sand everything to 150 grit with random orbit or hand sander of choice. Stain if you prefer and apply clear coat. Re-attach hardware and you're done!
