There is one part of the house that needs extra saving space. It is no other than kitchen area. This corner seem simple but requires a lot of cooking tools. If the house owner relies on lower cabinet only, it might not be enough. Why don’t they try to make another cabinet on the top?
Preparing The Woods
The carpenters will need ¾, ¼ and one inches plywood. For the sides and bottom, take the ¾ board, cut two pieces of 10×30 inches and two pieces of 10×19 inches. For the back top support, a piece of 4×19 inches will be enough. The back part will need a piece of 30×12 ½ inches cut.
Drilling The Parts
It is important to do the drilling in the beginning. The carpenter should make the holes in the inside.Use ¾ inches pocket holes. If the wood maker wants to make the shelves higher, then make the sides board longer. As for the depth, it only takes different plywood separators size in the shelves later.
Assembling The Pieces
The next procedure is attaching the sides with the upper and bottom board. Keep in mind that back support is an important part of the hanging shelves. It will support the whole shelves weight while attached to the wall. Wider shelves might need the bottom support as well.
It takes two tools to attach the support to the walls; by glue and by ¾ inches nails. The nails is also used to stick the sides, top and bottom board together. For face frame, it must be assembled later. However, the tools is quite similar: glue and 1 ¼ screws.
Installing The Doors
If the carpenter’s kitchen already have a line of shelves before making the additional ones, then it is suggested to match the overall size of the shelves. In the initial plan, leaving ¼ inches less width on the top and bottom is meant to the door to fit in.
This measurement might change if the door has thicker structure of the face frame has certain pattern or edging. After adjustment, it is suggested to connect the door to the body with hinges. Make sure the screw doesn’t show up on the outer layer.
The process of dresser making starts with cutting the plywood. After that, the carpenters need to assembly the body first before installing the door. Only then, the hung cabinet is ready to use. Be careful in the procedure; upper shelves must hold more weight than the lower ones. Good luck!
