Cut the Frame

The frame for the cabinet consists of 2x4s that are measured and marked at the determined length, then cut on a compound miter saw.

Step 2

Mark and Cut the Plywood

Mark the width of the side panels on 3/4" plywood and draw a line with a straight edge (Image 2).

Cut the plywood with a corded circular saw (Image 1). The thickness of the wood makes this too big of a job for the cordless saw.

The panels can then be cut to height on the miter saw.

Attach the End Studs

Determine the center point of the cabinet on the wall, then mark the end panel locations. Use a level to draw a straight line, then attach the end studs to the wall.

Step 4

Secure the Cabinet

Use toggle bolts for added support where there are no studs to secure the cabinet. Pre-drill a hole and slide in the bolt (Image 1). Tap it back with a hammer and tighten with a screw gun (Image 2).
