Notes About the Project:
- Edge banding will be applied to the exposed edges of the plywood prior to assembly
- Sanding all of the pieces ahead of time makes finishing much easier!
- To save on the cost of the 1/4″ plywood, a 4′ x 4′ sheet can be purchased, and the back can be cut into two pieces with the seam behind one of the dividers
Cut the pieces for the legs and the side panels. With the pocket hole jig set for 3/4″ material, drill pocket holes in each side edge of the side panels. Secure the side panels to the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. The top edge of the side panel is located 3/4″ down from the top of the legs, and the back face is flush with the inside faces of the legs.
Cut the pieces for the top and the bottom. Cut 1-1/2″ x 1-1/2″ notches in each corner of the top and bottom pieces using a jigsaw. Secure the top and the bottom to the sides using glue and 2″ brad nails.
Cut the piece for the back panel. Secure the piece to the back of the stand using glue and 1-1/4″ brad nails.
Cut the pieces for the dividers. Using a shelf pin jig, drill holes in the dividers for the adjustable shelves. This tutorial on using a shelf pin jig will be super helpful!
Install the dividers and secure in place using glue and 2″ brad nails.
Cut the piece for the small door divider and secure in place using glue and 2″ brad nails.
Cut the pieces for the shelves but measure first – depending on the style of the shelf pins you choose, the overall width of the shelves may have to be adjusted!
Cut the pieces for the small doors. There will be a 1/8″ gap around all sides of the doors in the openings. The hinges will be mounted to the bottom of the doors so that the doors drop down but they can also be installed on the side of the doors. Once the doors are installed, install the handles of choice and then install the magnetic catches to keep the doors closed.
Cut the pieces for the doors and install in the openings. Then install the handles and magnetic catches.
Finish as desired!
