- 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.
