Interlock two pieces of the wainscot as shown in Image 1. Apply glue to the inside of the end rail assemblies, slide the wainscot pieces into the assembly (flush with the bottom, Image 2) and attach using #18 x 5/8-inch brads as shown (Image 3).
Apply glue to the inside of the back side rail assembly (rails and stiles), slide three interlocked pieces of wainscot into the assembly (flush with the bottom) and attach using 5/8-inch brads (Image 4).
Drill two pocket holes on the ends of the door stiles. Position the door stiles flush with the ends of the door rails as shown in Image 1 and attach using glue and 1-1/4-inch pocket-hole screws.
Rip one piece of wainscot to 3 3/8 inches wide. Cut it and two other pieces of wainscot to 26 5/8 inches long. Interlock the three pieces and position them flush with the bottom edge of the door rail and centered on the door assembly (this should leave a space about 1/2 inch below the top door rail). Attach using glue and 5/8-inch brads.
Drill two pocket holes on the ends of the trash can shelf rails. Position the trash can shelf stile flush with one end of each of the trash can shelf rails and attach using glue and 1-1/4-inch pocket-hole screws.
Position this assembly flush with the bottom of the door assembly and centered on the door assembly, and attach using glue and 1-1/4-inch pocket-hole screws as shown in Image 2. You will need to use a short square drive bit to drive the pocket-hole screws.
Position the door shelf centered on the shelf rail/stile assembly and flush against the door panel and attach using glue and #18 x 1-1/4-inch brads as shown in Image 3.
Position the stop centered on the inside of the top side rail and attach using glue and 1-1/4-inch brads as shown in Image 1.
Position the continuous hinge centered on the top edge of the bottom side rail and attach using the included screws as shown in Image 2.
Use a paint stirrer as a spacer, and clamp the door assembly centered on the door opening and attach using the included screws as shown in Image 3.
Attach the friction lid supports centered and against the back edge of the hinge blocks as shown in Image 4.
Position the hinge blocks 6 3/4 inches from the top of the bottom side rail and attach using glue and 1-5/8-inch screws (Image 5). Drill countersunk pilot holes.
Position the other end of the friction lid support on the door assembly 3 1/4 inches from the shelf and attach using the included screws (Image 6). Test the movement of the supports and adjust the position of the supports if needed.
Apply glue to the inside of the screw holes for the hinge blocks, insert a 5/16-inch dowel, and cut the dowel flush using a flush-cut handsaw.
Remove the door, fill nail holes and paint the assembly as desired.
Attach a door pull (knob) centered on the top door rail.
