This D.I.Y. Advice is part of a series How To Assemble and Install a Slimline Cabinet

Step by Step Instructions

1 Attach the sides of the slimline cabinet to the base panel
2 Attach the back and top panels to the slimline cabinet
  • Step 1. Attach the sides of the slimline cabinet to the base panel

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

    Put the back 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 repeat this process with the top panel and your slimline cabinet is ready to be installed.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. 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. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
