Mid-Century Modern media cabinets don't have to break the bank. Check out how simple it is to build trendy storage on a tight budget! Hint: it only took one sheet of plywood to build!

Directions

Follow the steps below to complete this project.

1

Check Dimensions

Check the dimensions of the project to make sure it fits your space.

2

Make Cuts

Use the cut list to make your cuts.

3

Create Frame

Create your frame by attaching top, bottom, and side pieces with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and glue.

4

Add Back Panel

Add back panel with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws and wood glue.

5

Add Shelf (Optional)

Add a shelf to your build with 1 1/4" pocket hole screws & wood glue, if needed. I used mine for a 3D printer, so no shelving was added!

6

Create Handle Cut Outs

Use a jig saw to create cut outs for the door handles. The ones on this particular cabinet are 1/2" wide and 3" tall on each door.

7

Attach Doors

Use the Kreg cabinet hardware jig to add your full overlay concealed hinges.

8

Add Legs

Add your legs as per manufacturer directions. Visit my website at diyhuntress.com for a link to the exact legs used in this build.

9

Sand & Stain

Stain your piece! Add artwork to the front to help the unit pop!
