Every person needs a DIY storage cabinet for their homes to organize the things they need. There are many different kinds of cabinet boxes that you can buy anywhere but do not give you the maximum use of it because of its price and because of its size. It is easier to make a storage box by yourselves so that you can save money.
The first step in making DIY box storage is by determining how big and significant the storage cabinet will be. It will help if you search correctly on how to do it and not by changing the structure while doing it. You must check the width, height, and depth on where you will put the storage cabinet and measure everything correctly.
Making The Side Panels
After measuring the size you want in your Diy Storage cabinet, they must make a comprehensive cut list and shopping list to cut all the necessary wood to form into its appropriate and original size. After cutting down the wood, you must start creating the side panels by drilling both sides of the pocket holes.
The spaced pocket hole is measured 8-10 inches apart from each other, and you must make sure that the wood grain is in a different direction. You must use a Kreg pocket system if you want hassle-free work. This will give people a good fit because it will direct you to the proper pocket holes. People will not worry about the sawdust because of the Kreg pocket system.
When you are finished drilling the pocket holes, the next step is to add some wood glue on the edge of its design so that you can stick them together. After that, combine the screw of the pocket hole and the wood panels at the same time to drill the hole pocket system. After joining the pieces together, you must glue the outside panel and put it down.
You must flip the whole panel of the pocket holes facing upward and then drill the pilot holes that are screwed to the 1×2 board. Preparing the outer edges of the screws will also help you do the work efficiently. You must use four screws, all in all, one on each of every side, for it to be sturdy. Put the wood down to make sure that it is all flushed.
Assembling The Top Support
Assembling the top part of this DIY storage cabinet is very simple and easy, but many people are having difficulty putting this. It would help if you put the side panels on the wedged floor with the 2×2 pieces in the middle. It will help you make sure that its corners are a square-shaped size clamped down into its original place.
After screwing the bottom and top 2×2’s, you must clamp them into one place. Screwing the 2.5 pocket hole will hold its side. Note that you must not glue the 2×2 wood panel if you want to rebuild the future unit. When you’re done, you must check all the top and the side foundation that looks like the one you want to accomplish.
Painting, Staining, And Sanding
After you finish building the whole DIY storage cabinet, you must check all the sides to see some holes, dents, nicks, and imperfections. It would be best to pat it up with a knife after the wod filler will dry up. Use a rotating sander and put everything into one place because sanding is super messy. Always put on eye protection and a mask for your face.
You can also sand down all of the essential parts before you assemble it because once the side panels are complete, the top and bottom base will also be completed. Many people use this method in every storage that they make to have more accessible work. After sanding it, you must wipe and wash away the ultra-fine sawdust with a cloth and paint or stain it as usual.
But if you want to maintain the original color of the wood, you must add a polyurethane and put it all over to make the natural color shine and to have a dust free DIY storage cabinet. People can save up space if they have already finished this cabinet because they can put a lot of stuff on it.
When the DIY storage box is already completed, you can now put all of the important things or the things that you want to put on in the storage cabinet. You can now chill and admire the work you have created because you can use it for various purposes and save a lot of space, for the things that you need
