Open the box containing the main cabinet, and sort pieces based on size and type.
Empty the bag of hardware on a flat surface and sort. Be careful not to lose any pieces. There should be 12 cam-lock screws, 12 cam-lock nuts, 4 black screws, and 8 shelf pins.
Lay the two panels on a flat working surface.
Screw in the cam-lock screws at the top and bottom of the side panels into the pre-drilled holes.
Take one of the two remaining long boards, (these are the top and bottom of the cabinet) and slide them onto the cam-lock screws of one of the boards. Make sure that the dowel slides into the correct slot.
Carefully place a cam-lock nut in each hole.
Secure the cam-lock nuts with a screwdriver.
Slide back braces into the appropriate slots along the back. Gently tap the panel into place with the rubber mallet.
Attach the other side panel with the cam-lock screws onto the top of the structure you have built. Repeat steps 5 & 6.
Slide the ¼ inch melamine panel into the small slot between the back braces and the top and bottom panels.
Lay the the cabinet down on it’s face.
Find the four holes for the black screws along the back braces.
Drill a pilot hole into each of the four holes going through the sides of the cabinet.
Screw in the black screws to secure the cabinet.
With a hot glue gun, glue 3-4 inch strips where the ¼ inch melamine panel meets the top and sides of the cabinet to keep it from vibrating.
Lay the cabinet on it’s back, and set it aside for the moment.
Face Frame Carton:
Open the other box that came in the shipment, this should contain the face frame.
Place the face frame flat on a working surface.
Insert the cam-lock screws into the pre-drilled holes on the face frame.
Insert the cabinet and cam-lock screws into appropriate holes on the cabinet structure you have created.
Gently tap the face frame with a rubber mallet to make sure that it is aligned.
Secure the cam-locks with the cam-lock nuts as described in step 6 & 7 above.
Insert shelf pins at the desired height, making sure that all 4 pins for one shelf are at the same height, and that the flat side of the pin is facing up.
