Attach Record Front & Door

Attach RECORD DISPLAY FRONT using wood glue and 1-1/4" brad nails along the sides and bottom. Also, attach from the rear using the two pocket holes you drilled into the RECORD DISPLAY MID PIECE using 1-1/4" pocket hole screws. Using your Kreg Concealed Hinge Jig, drill holes approximately 2" from the top and bottom of the door. Mount door to left SIDE using concealed Euro hinges. You can also use alternative hinges but will need to follow the manufacturer's instructions for those specific hinges.
