Add the top and doors

WOOD - - SHOP TIPS -

1 Edge-join an over­size blank for the top (Q) and cut it to fin­ished size. Fin­ish-sand the top and cham­fer the edges [Ex­ploded View]. Coun­ter­bore the legs for fig­ure-8 fas­ten­ers [Draw­ings 5 and 5a].

2 Screw the hinges to the doors and in­stall the pulls [Draw­ing 2, Sources]. Mount the doors in the case [Pho­tos F and G]. In­stall the catches [Ex­ploded View].

3 Re­move all hard­ware. In­spect all parts and as­sem­blies and fin­ish-sand where needed. Ap­ply stain and fin­ish. (We used a wa­ter-based satin polyurethane top­coat.)

4 Re­in­stall the doors and hard­ware. In­stall fig­ure-8 fas­ten­ers and the top. Rest the shelf on shelf pins [Sources]. Place the cab­i­net in a hall­way, hang a mir­ror over it, and watch a smile spread across your face.

Bar­rel of hinge rests against leg and hinge reg­is­tra­tion strip. Rest the door with at­tached hinges on the spacer with the hinge knuck­les against the reg­is­tra­tion strip. Drill screw holes with a self-cen­ter­ing bit and drive the screws.
