Making a kitchen unit is designing it to serve many purposes. A kitchen unit that houses a cook top, double sink and an icemaker as well as storage for cooking utensils and other items is ideal. Kitchen units can be a simple as an island on wheels or a custom-built pie rack.
Cabinet Assembly - Place the 92½-by-44½-by-¾-inch plywood (bottom shelf) on your worktable. Measure from each end of the plywood and make a mark at 34½ inches. Place the framing square on the marks and draw lines across the 44½-inch width of the plywood to indicate where the dividers will go.
Apply glue to the tops of the cleats on the end panels and lay them on their 35¼-inch edge. Place one at each end of the bottom shelf and secure them to the bottom shelf through the end panels with 4d finish nails.
Separate the frame ends far enough to put the 90-inch pieces between them. Put one of the 2-by-90-inch pieces at one end of the frame sides and one of the 4¾-by-90-inch pieces at the other end and secure them with corrugated fasteners. Repeat Step 2 for the remaining frame pieces. Place the 2-by-28-by-¾-inch pieces (stiles) on the marks drawn in Step 1 and secure them to the top and bottom of the frame with corrugated fasteners.
Face Frames - Place the four 2-by-35¼-by-¾-inch plywood (face frame sides) on the worktable along with the two 2-by-90-by-¾-inch (top of face frame) and the two 4¾-by-90-by-¾-inch plywood (bottom of frame). Lay the 90-inch pieces so their long edges are touching. Measure in from both ends and make a mark at 32 and 34 inches.
Cut the veneer edge band to fit inside the face frame openings and secure it with a hot iron. Sand the edges of the edge band with a sanding block and 100-grit sandpaper. Install the 48-by-96-inch countertop on the kitchen unit and secure it from the bottom side though the 1-by-4s.
