Project Overview

The microwave oven cupboard is slightly different to any other kitchen cabinet, but the way you assemble it is basically the same. We’ll show you how to screw the panels together and point out the unique features of the box design.
Continue to step-by-step instructions

Step by Step Instructions

1 Attach the back panel to the base of the microwave box
2 Attach the side panels of the microwave box
3 Attach the top panel of the microwave box
  • Step 1. Attach the back panel to the base of the microwave box

    Put the back panel into place and line up the pre-drilled holes. Then place the screws in the holes, giving each screw a twist with your hand as you do. This will steady the screw and make it easier to drive home. Now use the screwdriver head on your drill to gently drive the screws into place.
  • Step 2. Attach the side panels of the microwave box

    The left and right side panels of the microwave box are slightly different to one another. So make sure you are using the correct one in this step. Put the first side panel into place and line up the holes. Once again, twist the screws in the holes by hand, then drive the screws gently home with your drill.
  • Step 3. Attach the top panel of the microwave box

    The top panel of the microwave box is slightly shorter than the rest of box. This gives the box a gap to allow heat from the back of the microwave to escape. Once again, line up the pre-drilled holes, insert your screws and gently drive them into place.
