be very careful during assembly and not to use unnecessary force as it could cause damage to the joiners Each drawer consists of 2 Drawer Sides Part K 2 Drawer Aprons Part L for soft closing drawers the rear and back drawer aprons will vary slightly the rear apron will have a notch at the base of each side whereas the front apron has a straight base and will contain two predrilled holes in order to attach the Door Face 1 Drawer Bottom Part M and the Drawer Front not shown in the exploded view of the part list STEP 1 Collect your tools For this project you will need 0 Power Drill with Phillips 0 Wood glue 0 2 x 4 piece of scrap wood screwdriver tip 0 Rubber mallet STEP 2 For each drawer locate 2 Drawer Sides Part K 2 Drawer Aprons Part L one notched as well as one straight bottom with predrilled holes 1 Drawer Bottom Part M and the Drawer Front and set them on a secure work surface bottom groove side facing upward Part K Drawer Side STEP 3 Set aside one of the drawer aprons Part L

Domain Cabinets Direct 888USCABINETS STEP 4 Align the drawer side Part K with the glued side of the front drawer apron Part L ensuring the groves at the base of each piece align and that the dovetail joiners align Tap gently with the rubber mallet PRO TIP To fit the pieces together and avoid damage to the box and joiners use the scrap 2 x 4 by placing it over Remember Although dovetail makes a very secure joining the dovetail tongues are vulnerable to damage until the sides are assembled be careful and try not to force pieces together the dovetail joint Tap the mallet firmly but carefully The 2 x 4 distributes the pressure of the mallet evenly and also keeps the mallet from leaving impressions in the wood STEP 5 Part K Drawer Side STEP 7 STEP 8 Locate Part M Drawer Bottom Slide the drawer bottom into place along the grooves Part L Place a small bead of wood glue between the dovetail joiners on opposite side of the front drawer apron Part L already joined to the drawer side Part K Take the other drawer side Part K and slide it into place aligning it with the glued dovetail joiners and the drawer base Tap gently with the rubber mallet as described in STEP 4 and as listed in the above PRO TIP Locate Part K the back Drawer Side Apply small beads of wood glue on both dovetail joiner sides Align the back drawer apron Part K to the drawer sides Part L and drawer base gently tapping it into place with the mallet Repeat the instructions listed in the above PRO TIP Repeat for all drawers STEP 2 STEP 7 for all drawers Locate the Drawer Box Segment of the drawer glides set aside earlier during the cabinet base assembly Drawer Glide STEP 9 Placing the assembled drawer box on its side positioning the drawer box segment of the drawer glides so that the break end faces the front of the box and the pinched end faces the rear Be sure to align the predrilled holes on the drawer sides with holes on the drawer slide Secure using the 12mm slide screws Repeat for each side of each drawer P rt L a Drawer Apron STEP 10 Attaching Drawer Fronts Use a piece of scribe molding as a spacer to align the fronts then attach from the back inside the drawer using 30mm screws Clamps come in handy to hold the pieces in place during drilling Repeat for each drawer and for the sink side false panel Keep in mind you won t necessarily attach the drawer fronts to the drawer aprons at the predrilled holes Each style is different As a rule AL WAYS attach aprons to the meat of the drawer front to avoid drawer front damage Drawer Front NOTE When attaching handles be sure not to overtighten screws as it could damage the front You may wish to attach hardware to the quotmeatquot of the drawer front such as the frame on a shakerstyle cabinet Domain Cabinets Direct 6Page Domain
