Today we are going to teach you how to make your very own DIY birch plywood cabinet fronts. The end result of this Diy project is so great that it seems as if you have purchased the furniture like this from the shop.
Supplies one needs to make the birch plywood cabinet fronts are as follows.
- Birch plywood
- Circular saw
- Staple gun
- Drill bit for Cabinet hinges
- Cabinet hinges
- Measuring tape
- Linseed oil
The first step is to remove all of the old doors of your cabinets along with their hinges and faces for drawers.
Use the sandpaper for sanding the base of the vanity to remove all of the stains or varnish there.
With measuring tape take measurements for the base of vanity and make a rough idea for the size of the new cabinet doors and drawers.
On the birch plywood mark the lines for the cabinet face with the masking tape.
By using the straightedge, start drawing the lines for the new cabinets over the masking tape you had placed.
Now take the birch plywood with marked lines over to the circular saw and start cutting along the earlier marked lines. With this you will be left with the drawer and cabinet fronts.
Use the sandpaper or a sander to sand all of these boards’ fronts.
Take these cabinet doors and turn them onto the backside for the installation of hinges. Using the guide that I provided with the drill bit for cabinet hinges, mark center point for these hinges and their screws accordingly. Carve the holes for the cabinet hinges with the drill bit and the drill some pilot holes for placing screws.
Attach these hinges to their doors as well.
Attach your cabinet doors in their right places in the frame of the cabinet.
Now staple the drawer faces on the existing drawers. You can also put in wooding glue instead of using the stapler.
Use the boiled linseed oil and apply it over the rag cloth and start oiling these new cabinet fronts.
Now add on the hardware you like and your new birch plywood cabinet fronts are ready.
