Follow these 7 steps

  • The first thing you should have done is measuring the dimensions of the plywood sheets and 1-by-4 lumber for the space in your wall. Cut a piece of plywood to the dimensions of the space by simply using the rotating saw, and then this is the rear of the cabinet wall. To make the cabinet door, another piece of the plywood sheet needs to be cut in 2 inches wider and longer than the rear wall. For instance, the cabinet door must be 2.16-by-4.16 feet if the rear wall measures 2-by-4 feet.
  • The four pieces of lumber should be measured and cut to alight with the plywood edges. For instance, two slabs of lumber measure 2 feet and the other two slabs measure 4 feet.  If the sheet measures 2-by-4 feet. Then these become the edges or sidewalls of the cabinet.
  • To create the outer walls of the cabinet frame, the 1-inch edges of the four pieces of lumber must be aligned with the plywood sheet. To attach the pieces of wood, nails must be inserted from the back of the plywood and into the 1-inch edge of the lumber.
  • The width of the inner cabinet walls where the shelves go should be properly measured. This measurement is used to cut the 1-by-3 lumber. Cot one slab for each shelf. For instance, make each slab of 1-by-3.  The same length if the width of the cabinet is 1 foot, 10 inches.
  • The first 1-by-4 could be positioned in the cabinet now. And also, two wood nails must be driven from the outer cabinet wall into each side of the lumber. To attach each shelf, repeat the steps.
  • The drill bit should be matched to the screws included with the hinges. Depending on how you want to open the cabinet door.  The bit must be attached to the drill then bore the hinge holes into the left or right side of the cabinet side.
  • In order to make sure that the door opens properly before fitting.  Make sure you don’t have any obstructions in the way.
