Installing the door catches

Before installing the glass, mount the doors on the bookcase, attaching them with hinges the same way you fastened the fall-front to the desk unit (page 126). It is easier to install the door catches without the glass in place. The ball catches shown above feature a catch fastened to the bottom panel of the bookcase and a strike plate screwed to the inside face of the door stiles; two spring-loaded balls in the catch capture the strike plate when the door is closed. Assemble the catches, hold one in position against its door stile, then move it toward the back panel by !4> inch and mark the screw holes. Drill a pilot hole at each mark and screw the catch in place. Repeat the marking (above, left) and fastening process for the other catch. To install the strike plate, insert its screws, engage it with the catch, and close the door; the tips of the screws will mark impressions in the door stile. Drill a pilot hole at each mark and fasten the strike plate to the door. Repeat for the other plate (above, right).
