Step One

Edge banding will be applied to the exposed edges of the plywood before assembly.

Cut the pieces for the legs and side panels. The panels can be assembled by edge glueing the planks or by drilling pocket holes and using 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws to join them. Drill pocket holes along each outer board to attach the panels to the legs and secure using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws.  The back face of the panels will be flush with the inside face of the legs.

Step Five

Cut the pieces for the dividers and drill pocket holes in one shorter edge and one longer edge of each piece, as well as at the top front where the divider will be secured to the stretcher. For a more professional look, create a right and a left piece so the pocket holes will be hidden where the drawers will be located. Secure to the back, bottom, and upper front stretcher using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws.

Step Ten

Cut the pieces for the drawer fronts. Assemble the drawer fronts by edge gluing the pieces together or by using pocket hole screws. Mark the location for the handles or knobs and drill holes for the screws. The front will overlap the dividers by 1/4″ and there will be a 1/4″ gap between the drawer fronts except at the top of the upper front and the bottom of the lower front where there will be a 1/8″ gap.  Position the drawer front on each of the drawer boxes and drive a screw through each hole for the cabinet pull into the drawer box. Open the drawer, and secure the front to the box using 1-1/4″ countersunk screws from the inside. Remove the screws in the holes for the cabinet pulls, and finish drilling out the holes. Install the cabinet pulls.
