You can make your own mini spice cabinet with sliding doors. The cabinet is designed to be cut from a 4mm material such as Eurolite Poplar. It measures H108mmW378mmD80mm. The depth and height are largely constrained by the P2 template, but the height can be increased, although that will require taller doors that won’t fit on a P1. Most of the joints in this design are interlocking, so little glue is required to hold everything together.

To assemble this cabinet you will require:
• PVA or wood glue
• Small model making clamps or bulldog (stationery) clamps for clamping small pieces
• F-clamps or masking tape for holding together final model

Assembly instructions:
1. Slot in + glue top door guides [2+3] into top [1] = [1+2+3]. The raster engraved grooves should be facing up toward the guides
2. Glue bottom lining [7] to bottom [6] on the grooved side = [6+7]. Side and back tab edges should be perfectly aligned.
3. Glue together the back [6+7] and top [1+2+3]. The back piece [6+7] should be facing in the same direction as the door guides [2+3]
4. Slot + glue back top support [5] into back [4].
5. Glue bottom lining front strip [8] to [6+7] on the grooved side. Align with front edge with side edges protruding evenly
6. Glue together back [9] to bottom assembly [6+7+8]. The back piece [9] should be facing in the same direction as the raster engraved grooves and the lining and guide pieces [7+8]
7. You now have the bottom and top parts assembled. Next is attaching these to the sides
8. Slot in and glue top [1+2+3+4+5] and bottom [6+7+8+9] to one of the sides [10]. Works best when the side piece [10] is lying flat, and the other components are insterted into the slots from above
9. Place the other side [10] flat on the working surface and insert the assembly into the slots. This is a tight fit, so you may need a rubber mallet or something heavyish on hand to help with the slotting.
10. Either use the f-clamps to hold everything together while the glue sets, or tightly wrap masking tape around the box
11. Allow at least 12 hours for the glue to dry. Sand off any messy glue globs, prime and paint the cabinet.
12. Once the paint is completely dry, insert the sliding doors.

Additional notes:
The only pieces that have different front and back are the top [1] and the bottom [6] pieces.
Try assembling the parts first without gluing to make sure you’re comfortable with the assembly.
The tabs are designed for a tight fit, so perfect alignment is important.

Making cost:
This is for 4mm poplar and 3mm clear acrylic.
