Please read through the entire plan and all comments before beginning this project. It is also advisable to review the Getting Started Section. Take all necessary precautions to build safely and smartly. Work on a clean level surface, free of imperfections or debris. Always use straight boards. Check for square after each step. Always predrill holes before attaching with screws. Use glue with finish nails for a stronger hold. Wipe excess glue off bare wood for stained projects, as dried glue will not take stain. Be safe, have fun, and ask for help if you need it. Good luck!
On the outsides of the sides and top/bottom, drill 3/4" pocket holes along the front edges (outsides or less attractive side) of the pieces, for attaching the face frame in later steps. These pocket holes will be covered by neighboring cabinets, or if end cabinet, covered in 1/4" finished plywood to match doors and face frames.
Then on the outsides, drill 3/4" pocket holes on each end of the top and bottom, and attach to sides with 1-1/4" pocket hole screws and glue.
Drill 3/4" pocket holes along top edge and ends of back support. Attach inset at back - this piece will be used to hang your cabinet. You can also add a second piece at the base for additional support.
We used leftover finished plywood for these pieces, but a 1x3 or 1x4 could also be used.
Standard 30" wide x 12" tall over the range wall cabinet, designed for over a microhood or vent. Free kitchen cabinet plans from Ana-White.com
The back is not structural - it just finished out the inside of the cabinet. Attach with 3/4" finish nails and glue.
Build the face frame separately on the table, and then attach the completed face frame to the front of the cabinet.
For full overlay doors, with 1/2" reveal between doors, order or make doors as shown above. We purchased our doors from Cabinet Now (not sponsored - they just make a great product for a good price) and were very happy with them. We attached our doors with 1-1/4" full overlay concealed euro style hinges for face frame cabinets.
