End Panels:
- Start by applying the cut-to-size plywood to the cabinet end panels. Apply wood glue to the back of the plywood (Figure 1), then fit it to end panel, making sure it is flush with the cabinet front and bottom (Figure 2)
- Use finishing nails to secure cut-to-size plywood to cabinet end panel (Figure 3).
- Using sanding block with 150 grit sandpaper, sand the edges of the plywood to ensure that it is flush with the cabinet's front frame (Figure 4). Use a clean tack cloth to remove the sanding dust.
- Check entire cabinet for areas where unfinished wood is exposed, such as along the sanded edges of the plywood, and seal the edges (Figure 5).

Self-Adhesive Coverings:

With a sharp pair of scissors or razor knife and straight edge, cut the self-adhesive covering into strips 1/2'' wider and 2'' longer than the face frames you plan to cover (Figure 6 and 7).
