If using edge banding, it should be applied to the exposed edges of the panels before assembly. For an easy tutorial on edge banding, click here.
1. Cut the pieces for the legs and side panels. If desired, a taper can be cut in each leg using a tapering jig and a tablesaw, or a jig saw. It is entirely optional but be sure to maintain the dimensions shown. The tapers should face to the inside of the cabinet.
Drill pocket holes in each side as well as the top of the side panels. Attach the legs to the panels using glue and the pocket hole screws. The inside face of the panels will be flush with the inside face (the tapered side, if cutting tapers) of the legs.
2. Cut the piece for the back and drill pocket holes as shown. Attach to the legs using glue and the pocket hole screws. The inside face of the panel will be flush with the inside face of the legs.
3. Cut the piece for the bottom. Drill pocket holes along three edges (the sides and the back) and attach using glue and pocket hole screws. The underside of the bottom panel will be flush with the bottom of the side panels.
4. Cut the pieces for the stretchers and drill pocket holes in each end. When attaching the stretchers to the legs, orient the two lower stretchers so the pocket holes are facing down and the upper stretcher so the pocket holes are facing up. This way, they will be hidden!
5. Cut the piece for the top. The sides and front will overlap by 1/2″. Attach using glue and pocket hole screws through the holes in the sides and back into the underside of the top.
6. Cut the pieces for the drawer boxes. Assemble as shown using glue and pocket hole screws.
Cut the pieces for the bottoms. Attach to the drawer box frame using glue and 3/4″ brad nails.
Attach the drawer slide hardware according to the manufacturer’s instructions. For an easy tutorial, click here. Make any necessary adjustments.
7. Cut the pieces for the drawer fronts. There will be a 1/8″ gap around all sides. For an easy tutorial on installing them, click here. Install the drawer pulls.
Finish as desired.
