  2. Rip the ¾-inch plywood to width on a table saw to form the cabinet's top, bottom, sides and center divider.
  3. Adjust the table saw blade and rip fence to cut a rabbet into the rear edge of the two sides of the cabinet.
  4. Install a stacking dado blade in the table saw and cut shallow grooves in the cabinet sides and center divider for metal shelf standards.
  5. Screw a shelf sides of the groove which was cut by the dado blade.
  6. Use a pocket-hole jig to bore pocket-screw holes into the ends of the cabinet's top and bottom.
  7. Fastly apply the top and bottom to the sides with 2-inch pocket screws.Place the center shelf between the top and bottom and hold it place with a bar clamp. Secure the shelf with some of 2-inch screws.
  8. Then Cut the cabinet back from ½-inch plywood.
  9. Lay the cabinet face down. Apply carpenter's glue to the every side of the cabinet, and also on the edge of the top, bottom and center divider.
  10. Set the ½-inch plywood back into a place where the glue was added and tack it with a pneumatic pin nailer and 1-inch pin. Secure the back with 1 ?-inch screws.
