This D.I.Y. Advice is part of a series How to assemble and install kitchen wall cabinets

Step by Step Instructions

1 Attach the sides of the wall cabinet to the back panel
2 Attach the base and top panels to the wall cabinet
3 Install the shelf in the wall cabinet
  • Step 1. Attach the sides of the wall cabinet to the back panel

    Put the base panel together with one of the sides, so the pre-drilled holes line up. Then twist the screws in place by hand first. This will steady the screw and make it easier to drive in. Now fit the screwdriver head to your drill and drive the screws into place. Repeat the process on the second side panel.
  • Step 2. Attach the base and top panels to the wall cabinet

    Put the base panel in place and line it up with the pre-drilled holes. Once again, twist the screws into the holes by hand before driving them all the way in with your drill. Then turn the cabinet over and repeat this process to install the top panel.
  • Step 3. Install the shelf in the wall cabinet

    Push the four shelf support brackets into the pre-drilled holes inside the cabinet. Then slide the shelf into place so it sits on the brackets. You can set the shelf to any height you like. Once your shelves are in place, the cabinet is ready to install.
