 Assembly Pics

Standard 15" Base

Standard Base Cabinet

First, you should find a quiet, open space where you can spread out your parts. I like to work from a bench or raised surface but any open floor space works well. Place your box face down and open by carefully cutting packing tape, remove all parts and locate face frame and side panels. 

You will want to place the face frame (face down) on any scratch resistant surface. The box you just opened will work nicely. Also, locate and open the parts bag. This bag has plastic parts and extra screws.

Face frame goes face down on soft surface (to protect from scratches) 
If you needed to reverse the hinge (door swing direction), (single door base cabinet) It is much easier to do it now, before attaching side panels. Simply remove the screws holding the hinge to the face frame, flip door, and reattach to other side of face frame. (some cabinet lines use hinge plugs in the door frame)

Position side panel over edge of face frame, align "L" brackets to slide under locking plates. Be sure the side panel fits into grove along face frame edge as illustrated.

Side panels snap into face frame

insert locking screw into all metal "L" brackets after they have been snapped into place.

Do not be alarmed if your assembly brackets do not look like the ones picture here. 

Because we supply products from several different distributors/manufacturers, you may find other assembly points (cam- locks) than what is illustrated here. Most assembly points are pre set at the manufacturing facility and should not need to be  moved or or realigned.


Slide floor panel into groves in side panels. Make sure floor panel is seated in grove of face frame as well. Finished side of floor goes to inside of cabinet.


snap in  and lock back panel 

Make sure back panel is seated in side panel edges before tightening brackets.

set shelf clips and shelf

drawer box

Screw together the back wall and the two side walls, then slide the bottom panel into the pre cut groves before attaching the front plate (drawer head). Again depending on your cabinet line....you may want to use some wood glue on the dovetail joints (if applicable)


insert and screw in the drawer guide back brackets (pre drilled holes in back panel)

Install drawer glides as shown...note left and right.... AGAIN....Depending on your drawer guide system, your hardware may or may not look like the pieces shown

slide drawer guide into back bracket

use beveled head screws to attach front of drawer guide to face frame (see pre drilled holes)

note how drawer box attaches to drawer guides

steel hook on drawer guide go into the predrilled hole on the back side of the drawer box

steel pin on forward drawer guide snaps into predrilled hole on bottom edge of drawer box side

screw on counter top brackets

attach quiet pads

Wall cabinets are assembled in a similar fashion but should go much faster (no drawers, toe kick,etc). I have found it much easier to assemble the sides, top and bottom plate first, then attach the face frame, and lastly, screw on the back plate from the outside.  To determine left or right hinging for single door "square" wall cabs, you will simply turn the face frame prior to assembly...The bottom plate (floor) is finished on both sides. Arched doors may have the pre drilled hinge plugs rather than requiring a full hinge/frame flip.  

Manhattan Maple, Southern Oak and Carson Cherry pics shown to generally demonstrate various brackets and parts

Each cabinet "flat pack" should have its own instruction sheet....usually located in the screw/hardware bag.
