Step by Step Instructions

1 Screw the side, base and back panels together
2 Assemble and install the adjustable legs
3 Attach the drawer runners to the sides
4 Assemble the drawers
5 Attach drawer panel
  • Step 1. Screw the side, base and back panels together

    Position a side panel on the base panel and use 50mm screws to screw it in place. Repeat on the other side. Screw on the top panel and the back panel. 
  • Step 2. Assemble and install the adjustable legs

    Turn the cabinet upside down and attach the adjustable legs to the base. Join the leg pieces and screw them together. Screw the legs to the cabinet using the pre-drilled holes. Make sure the tapered end is facing outwards. Adjust to the correct height. Repeat with the remaining legs.
  • Step 3. Attach the drawer runners to the sides

    Dismantle the drawer runners and screw half of each into place inside the cabinet. The last hole will need pre drilling. Make a small pilot hole with a 2mm drill bit then screw it in place.  Attach the runner on the other side.
  • Step 4. Assemble the drawers

    Start with the drawer base and attach front and back panels using screws, then for the left and right panels. Attach the draw runner to the sides of the drawer. 

  • Step 5. Attach drawer panel

    Insert the drawer into the cabinet and measure from the bottom of the cabinet to the bottom of the drawer. Transfer this measurement to the drawer panel. Place the bottom of the draw on this line. Screw the front panel to the draw. Insert drawer into cabinet and click the runners together.
