Cutting Instructions: 
Make sure you measure your 1x8 doors first for that perfect fitting door. If your 1x8s don't measure 7 1/2" wide, consider cutting your shelves a little less narrow.

General Instructions

Measure and cut your boards. Work on a clean level surface. Measure and mark out joints before fastening. Use 2" nails and glue unless otherwise specified. Adhere to proper safety guidelines and use proper safety equipment. Check for square after each step.

Step 1

Simple Double Door Play Fridge

Build the Box. Start with a side and attach the shelves, and the toekick with nails and glue. Attach your shelves as desired, perhaps measuring your kids food items and baskets before I mark with a tape measure and square where all the shelves should be placed first to ensure everything is built square.

Step 2

Shelves and Other Side. Attach the other side, and then the top. Attach the plywood to back making sure the piece is square. Use glue and tack nails or 1 1/4" finish nails to attach the back. Make sure you fasten to the shelves, too.

Step 3

Doors. Attach the doors with the hinges, and fill any visible nail holes with wood filler and sand and paint as desired. Attach the bar pulls.

Whoops!

I'm in the process of building this and a single 8' 1x12 is 7" too short. The 8' board gives you 96", but the plans require 103" total. Also, my 1x8's for the door only measure 7 1/4, so they are too narrow :( Guess I'll be ripping a 1x10 to fit.

I just built this and also

I just built this and also needed an additional 1x12. I thought about making it a little shorter but changed my mind. Measure your 1x8 for the doors before cutting. Mine was 7 1/4" so I adjusted my shelfs, top and bottom by 1/2" to make it for without having to do a rip cut.
