    How to Set Up Your Table Saw

    Deirdre Sullivan

    To avoid damage, I cut the four red boards that made up the cabinet (not including the door components) before assembling. I chopped the extra material off the exposed ends of the board.

    Before diving in, here's a tip: A dull saw blade will also chip Melamine.

    After drawing a line with a pencil that indicates where to cut off the extra, set the blade on your table saw. Note the photo above. The incision you make should only cut halfway through the board. Doing so will greatly reduce or even better, completely prevent any chipping.

    How to Hang a Wall-Mounted Cabinet

    Deirdre Sullivan

    After cutting the four boards, I assembled them together and added the door hinges according to IKEA's printed instructions. I didn't use the shelves, backing or wall brackets that came in the package. Instead, I added four L brackets as shown for mounting. But here's the trick, I didn't want to drill holes into my entryway wall to attach.

To install, I did not remove the gray panel. First, I removed the top two screws on the metal cover. The two lower screws kept the cover in place. Then I reattached the top two screws after slipping them through the L brackets and the metal cover as shown in the photo. Afterward, I repeated the process with the two lower screws.

    I used a self-adhesive film in a cute rice paper pattern. Unlike static cling window films, the self-sticking stuff doesn't involve a messy spray solution. The kit came with a trimming tool for cutting and a felt edged squeegee for application. It cost less than $10 on Amazon.
