This dining room storage bench. This is all custom made and the doors function like this for a nice storage space all around and we had to build in a nook to accommodate for the floor vents that was there and we've also got this built-in bookcase here on the end. So that's coming up. Next, I'm going to show you how I did here we go now to prepare this space. I had to remove the baseboard off the rear wall. I had to remove the decorative moldings on the wall, along with the chair, rail and cut the baseboard on the side and remove just enough to accommodate my boxes.
So once the space was all set, I was ready to begin. I was going to build four different boxes. The finished profile of each box would be about 16 inches tall 16 inches deep long enough to fill the space and each would sit on a two and a half inch tall base and each would be constructed with melamine to give it a nice clean finish on The inside and they would have doors that pulled down in order to open.
Now, with the three sides of my box assembled, I went and assembled the base. This is just two by threes, so since the existing baseboard is two and a half inches tall by putting this two and a half inches and then having another 3/4 inch of melamine, that gives us enough clearing between the top of the baseboard and the bottom of Our door, so those can open so see, I can put the floor of my cabinet in there and it all lines up nicely. Now I have my divider has to be cut three-quarters of an inch shorter and my end panels, lines up in there perfectly and I've got that per-drilled ready to go.
I've notched the front of the divider panel to accept this 1 by 2. Okay, per-drilled the outside of my panels and then I screwed the panels to this support base. So that's all set to go, but before I install it, I have an issue. We have that electrical outlet there that is going to be covered up when this thing is done, so I'm going to move it over to this wall, so I drilled through the base and the side panel and I drilled through the center of the base drilled through That side, then I've drilled through this area with the baseboard and up in here I drilled through the stud.
So I'm going to route my cable through here and back along there over to that box. I'll do the connection later, but I just want to have the cable in place, so I can continue working on the cabinets. Okay, I have my divider panel attached to the base through the bottom. It's not! I just slide this whole thing into place. Push it in so it all fits, and then I can attach it with these per-drilled holes. I'll put some screws in there just to hold it in place. That way, we don't see any screw holes and lazy. I put this one by to support in place. I've got it screwed from each end, so, once again, all fasteners are hidden. I've shimmed it underneath to get it level in both directions.
