Check the dimensions of the project to make sure it fits your space.
Use the cut list to make your cuts.
Create your frame by attaching top, bottom, and side pieces with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and glue.
Add Back Panel
Add back panel with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and wood glue.
Add Shelf (Optional)
Add a shelf to your build with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws & wood glue, if needed. I used mine for a 3D printer, so no shelving was added!
Create Handle Cut Outs
Use a jig saw to create cut outs for the door handles. The ones on this particular cabinet are 1/2" wide and 3" tall on each door.
Use the Kreg cabinet hardware jig to add your full overlay concealed hinges.
Add your legs as per manufacturer directions. Visit my website at diyhuntress.com for a link to the exact legs used in this build.
Sand & Stain
Stain your piece! Add artwork to the front to help the unit pop!
