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!
Build the basic carcass out of the 1x12 boards. You can use 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws to make.
Build the face frame with 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws first. Then attach the completed face frame to front of project with 1-1/4" finish nails and glue.
Attach back 1/4" plywood with 1" finish nails and glue.
Cut 4-1/4" base moulding to fit, mitering front corners. Nail on with nails long enought to pass through moulding into 3/4" thick sides and front (most likely 1" long nails). Use glue.
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.
