Build the storage box out of 1x12s. I recommend using 3/4" pocket holes and 1-1/4" pocket hole screws to secure everything, hiding pocket holes on insides. You can alternatively use 2" self tapping screws or 2" brad nails and glue.
Make sure project is square before this step.
Attach 1x2 front face frame boards with 1-1/4" brad nails and glue.
NOTE: To minimize front tipping, also attach 1x2s at top back for securing media center center to wall.
Set circular saw blade depth to about 1/4". Mark lines in 1x12 door faces. Make false cuts in 1x12s. TIP: Clamping a straight guide to the 1x12 will help you cut straighter.
Attach hardware, hinges and magnetic clasps.
Attach caster wheels to base.
An optional 1/4" back can be added, nail on with 3/4" brad nails and wood glue.
