Construction And Assembly

The method used to make the carcass is board and batten construction, which is one of the simpler ways to make a cabinet. The sides of the cupboard are the 'boards' and the side pieces of the three supporting square assemblies are the 'battens'. Where wide boards are required, pre-jointed boards are more convenient than jointing them yourself.
