Assembly:

Step 1:

Assemble each of the two sides by juxtaposing three A boards, connected by three H stiffeners and a G stiffener, centered in relation to the three boards.

– Screw an H stiffener to the higher end of the A boards.
          – Screw the G stiffener to the lower end. Note that this G part is made of a 1″ x 6″ part cut length ways 1″ x 3″.
          – Attach the last two H stiffeners on both sides at the centre of the assembly, 15 1/2″ from the lower end of the A boards.

 

 

Step 2:

Assemble the back by juxtaposing four A boards, connected by an I stiffener and an F stiffener centered in relation to the four boards.
– Screw the I stiffener to the higher end of the A boards.
– Screw the F stiffener to the lower end.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 3:

Attach the back of the sideboard
to the sides. The back should rest on the sides, and not be caught between them.

Step 4:

Screw an I stiffener on the front
to the two H stiffener above
the side panels.

Step 5:

Screw an F stiffener on the front to two G stiffener of the side panels.

 

 

Step 6:

Lay the E boards of the interior shelf on the central H stiffeners, and screw.

Step 7:

Lay the C boards on the higher H stiffeners. The C boards should be centered in relation to the sides. Screw.

 

 

 

Step 8:

Assemble the two hinged shelves by using three D parts, connected
by H stiffeners attached 2″ from the ends of the D boards.

Step 9:

Screw the piano hinges M to the shelves, and then to the sideboard.

Step 10:

Assemble each door by using two B parts connected by J stiffener
that are centered and placed 1 1/2″ from the ends of B.

Step 11:

Assemble each door by using two B parts connected by J stiffener
that are centered and placed 1 1/2″ from the ends of B.

Step 12:

Screw the L piano hinges to the doors and then to the sides of the sideboard.

Step 13:

Support of the hinged shelves, when unfolded, is ensured by the K parts,
which ends are cut at 45 degrees, and are supported by the central external stiffeners.

Although the cedar is weather resistant, it is recommended to store the sideboard during the winter to give it a longer life.
