Upper Cabinet

With an identical footprint and the same joinery, building it will be a breeze.

Building the upper cabinet is pretty much a repeat of what you did on the lower cabinet. It's taller, so some of the dim elisions will change, but the joinery and techniques are the same. But there are several minor differences to mention,

A FLUSH BOTTOM. First, the case bottom of the upper cabinet is flush with the bottom edge of the sides as shown in detail 'a.' This means that the bottom of the upper cabinet will sit solidly on the top of the lower cabinet. And then of course, you won't have any bottom trim or legs to worry about here.

FACE FRAMI. The face frame is constructed just the same as that for the lower cabinet, but you can leave out the bottom rail. Instead, I just glued an edging strip to the front of the case bottom. As you H can see in the photo, the two doors are sized to swing just above the top of Vfl the lower cabinet.

NO DIVIDER. And finally, for obvious reasons, there's no center divider or shelves in the upper cabinet. This space is all reserved for a large screen TV, so it needs to be wide open. And you'll only need a small cutout at the bottom of the back center panel to run your wires to the cabinet below, £3
