Your kit includes everything you see in the above picture.

-front

-back

-base

-2 sides

-countertop

-4 hardware pieces


You will need to supply the following items:

-craft glue

-super glue

-220 grit sandpaper

-spray paint and/or stains in colors of your choice

If you plan to stain the cabinet., you'll need to sand off the burned edges and stain before assembly. Start by spray painting the hardware so it has time to dry. I place mine on some painters' tape so nothing blows away; 2-3 coats should do the trick. Use 220-grit sandpaper to lightly sand off burn marks. Sawdust gets caught in the scored lines so just use a needle to scrape out excess sawdust to keep the lines sharp.

Now we'll assemble the base of the cabinet. Use craft glue to attach a side to the front. I use a square to make sure everything is lined up. Use craft glue to attach the bottom to the front and the existing side. Glue the remaining side. Apply craft glue to the front edges of the base and attach the back. If necessary, use a heavy book to apply pressure while the glue dries. If you plan to spray paint the base, this is the time to do it before you attach the top.

Peel the masking tape from both sides of the acrylic top. Once the glue is dry on the base, apply super glue to the top edge of the base and attach the acrylic top. Allow the glue to dry..

Apply small drops of craft glue to the circles on the front of the cabinet and add the hardware.
