Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
Start by building the basic box for the media console. To conserve wood, a top is not necessary. You'll just have to be extra attentive to make sure the face frames are attached square.
Build your back face frame first, then attach to back.
TIP: Consider adding the two additional 1x2s as done on front face frame just to finish out shelf dividers.
Build front face frame and attach to front. Note that both back and front face frames over extend the ends by 3/8".
Place middle dividers in the cabinet and attach by drilling 3/4" pocket holes around bottom and side edges. Attach with glue and screws.
Build top first, then attach top to cabinet as shown here, with equal overhangs on ends and front.
Build doors - must watch video on this!!!! - and attach with hinges to the front of the cabinet.
It is always recommended to apply a test coat on a hidden area or scrap piece to ensure color evenness and adhesion. Use primer or wood conditioner as needed.
