Finishing

  1. Fill all exposed screw holes with wood filler.
  2. Sand the chest assembly thoroughly.
  3. Install the top (M) onto the chest using a 4-foot-long piano hinge. The hinge is screwed into the long top trim (K) and the inside back edge of the top (M). The hinge should be installed so that the back edge of the top (M) is flush with the back of the chest. The top overhangs the front and sides of the chest by 1 inch.
  4. Stain or paint the completed project the color of your choice. I used a maple-colored stain.
  5. Attach the brass corner trim to all four corners of the finished chest.

Almost anyone can use an extra cabinet in the bedroom, the closet, or any other room. I needed more space to store my sweaters, and this pretty addition to my bedroom has two shelves inside, providing lots of room. Made with laminated pine sides, back, and top, the cabinet doesn't take long to build, and the elegant-looking paneled door is easier to construct than you might expect. The finished cabinet is approximately 22 inches wide, 12 inches deep, and 44 inches tall.
