Cut all the boards first with either a compound miter saw or a circular saw with a straight edge used as a guide.
You can use different methods depending on your tool set to build this play kitchen stove or sink.
- 2" self tapping screws like these
- 1-1/4" brad nails and wood glue (recommend an 18 gauge brad nailer)
- A Kreg Jig with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws
I personally would just nail and glue this together.
Attach the 1x2 and 1x4 apron to the sides.
Recommend: 1-1/4" brad nails and glue.
Add the bottom shelf, fasten to both the sides and the 1x2s.
The shelf can be placed at any height.
Attach the backsplash to the top first.
Then attach the entire top to the base.
Build the door with 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws.
Attach acrylic glass to the back with either craft glue or hot glue or predrill holes and attach with screws. Just make sure the screws DO NOT have a bevel on the back of the screw head.
This completes the sink base build. You can now accessorize by adding a sink bowl, curtains, faucet - the options are endless.
To make the base into a play kitchen stove, you'll need to add a stove door.
Install the stove door. I recommend a side swing so no little toes get bruised with a up and down swing. Install a magnet to keep the door closed.
Install handle and four knobs.
