Notes About the Project:
- Edge banding will be applied to the exposed edges of the plywood before assembly. If you like the look of the raw plywood edges, go for it!
- Sand all pieces before gluing and nailing everything together (this makes finishing easier!)
- If you prefer, 12″ hairpin legs can be substituted for the leg and apron frame
Cut the pieces for the top, bottom and dividers. Mark the position of the dividers on the inside faces of the top and bottom. Secure the dividers in place using glue and 2″ brad nails through the top or bottom face into the edge of the divider.
Cut the piece for the shelf and drill pocket holes in the shorter edges. Secure the shelf to the dividers using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws.
Cut the piece for the leg and apron frame. With the pocket hole jig set for 3/4″ material, drill pocket holes in each end of the apron pieces. Secure the apron pieces to the legs using glue and 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws. The front faces of the aprons will be flush with the inside faces of the legs.
Position the cabinet on the leg and apron frame, and secure in place using glue and 2″ brad nails through the inside of the bottom of the cabinet into the top edge of the aprons and legs.
Cut the piece for the back. Secure the back using glue and 1-1/4″ brad nails.
Use a hole saw to drill access holes in the back for electronic device cords, then finish as desired.
