All of the components with Work Space cabinets are assembled using a series of wood and metal dowels along with a metal cam to hold everything together.
The wood dowels come inserted into the ends of what we have labeled as the "Fixed Shelf"; which are really the top and bottom of the cabinets.
The metal dowels need to be screwed into the sides of the cabinets.
The easiest way to assemble the cabinet is by laying it on its side.
The cams simply push in but they need to be indexed in the right direction. There is a little arrow on the top of the cam and it needs to be pointed in the direction the dowel will be inserted; which is facing toward the edge of the part.
The cams are on the outside of the cabinet so flip it over to screw the metal dowel in.
Before we attach the top to the rest of the cabinet, we must first attach the hang rail to the top. This can not be done after the top is in place.The cams will show on the outside of the cabinet so we need to screw a metal dowel into the opposite side of the cams.
When you're installing the mounting plate for the hinge, make sure that the spring clip is facing the back of the cabinet.
You can see that the wood and metal dowels line up with the corresponding holes. This type of construction is typical in every cabinet.
We provide a french cleat which attaches to the wall to make the upper cabinet easier to install.
Next you slide the back in and screw it into the hang rails.
Gently tap the hinge in with a rubber mallet and turn the screw about a half turn. Then attach the door to the cabinet.
The last thing to do is put the cover caps on the cams.
Base cabinets are built slightly different than uppers in that there's a top rail instead of a full top in the cabinet. And there are corner blocks in the back. There are holes in the corner blocks and holes in the front rails to attach the counter top.
As you can see, there are leveler legs. Leveler legs are screwed into the pre-drilled holes on the bottom of the cabinet. Notice there is a longer lip on one side of the leveler leg. This lip needs to be positioned so that it extends over the side of the cabinet for support.
Drawers come assembled with the drawer slides attached. One half of the drawer slide must be removed and attached to the side of the cabinet using pre-drilled holes and 5 mm screws. This part is not "handed" it can go on either the right side or the left side of the cabinet. After the slides are installed, insert the drawers.
Drawer fronts come attached to the drawer box. If you need to adjust the drawer front, just loosen the screws in the back of the drawer, adjust the front, and tighten.Notice there are only two screws holding on the front, when the front is adjusted go ahead and screw in the other two screws. Then attach the drawer pull.
Install the strips that hold the bins with the provided 3/8" panhead screws. Once the bin rails are attached, simply slide in the cabinet and attach the pull. Trash cabinets are installed much the same way.
