a powered screwdriver. Assemble all Floor cabinets and place them in accordance
with your Floor Plan.
Level all the floor cabinets by adjusting the legs. Ensure that the largest
space between the floor and the bottom of the cupboards is no more than the
kickboard height ( 150mm is a good average).
If necessary, join cabinets together and attach side panels where specified
using the cabinet joiners or 28mm screws. Using longer screws can penetrate
the other side of the board and leave an ugly hole exposed. (can be covered
with a screw cap)
If a laminate splash back is to be glued to the wall, do this before fixing
the bench top or positioning the top units.
Fix and seal bench top joints and attach to floor units using 35mm chipboard
Mark a line on the wall at your preferred height (approx. 600mm) above the
laminate bench top for the position of the wall units. Use a spirit level
to ensure a horizontal line.

or cook top upside down on the bench top and mark the outline. Remove the
sink or cook top and mark a line 15mm inside the outline. Drill a 10mm hole
inside this line and using a Jigsaw cut out the bench top on the inside line.
Use the seals or silicone when fitting the sink or cook top in this space.
