Add 1" and divide by two (22" + 1" = 23" divided by 2 = 111⁄2"), meaning each door will be 111⁄2" wide. 8| Drill a 35mm-diameter hole, 3" on center, from each end of the door.

Secure the backboard to the carcass, flush with all edges of the box. This will force the cabinet corners into square. Install 2" PB screws at 6" centers around the perimeter of the back. Secure the first corner, aligning it square, then secure the remaining three corners while aligning the box. Install screws between the corners, aligning the sides, bottom and top boards flush with the edge of the backboard.
