Three cabinet units joined together

Overview

An island bench is a great way to create more storage and workspace in your kitchen. You can make one simply by joining three cabinets together. We'll show you how to level your cabinets up and screw them together.

Steps

1Screw the cabinets together for an island bench

Put the cabinets in position and set the height of the legs to 145mm. Check the cabinets are all sitting level with your spirit level and adjust the legs accordingly. Now clamp the cabinets together and pre-drill some pilot holes through the sides. Finish the job by screwing the cabinets together with 28mm screws.

Health & Safety

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
