How To Build A Double Oven Wall Cabinet
It's good to have guests visiting you at home all the time. But it could be a hassle when it comes to preparing big meals and making two of your special recipes in one oven. A double oven might probably be a good idea. However, unlike a regular oven that you can place above your kitchen counter, you might need a professional to build a wall cabinet for your oven. In this article, we will teach you how to build a double oven wall cabinet so you can do it yourself.
Make Your Own Double Oven Wall Cabinet
Here are the steps on how to build a double oven wall cabinet.
Step 1: Measurement
Double oven ranges from 24 to 36 inches wide, and as tall as 96 inches. Measure the space where you will place your double oven and get the specification of the oven you want to purchase. Follow the instructions in the manual that was provided by the manufacturer.
Step 2: Sketching and planning.
Draw and plan the cabinets' placement. Consider the surroundings of the kitchen. A few trial and errors are typical when planning before you come up with a final output.
Step 3: Cleaning up your workspace.
Before you start to build your cabinet, clean up, and prepare the space where you will install your oven. Make sure that nothing is on the way. Clear out any cables or wirings.
Step 4: Prepare all the tools needed.
Make a checklist of all the power tools or other tools you will need and prepare them before you start. Check the manual provided to you. There might be a few things you will need to buy as well. So be sure that you double check these things.
Step 5: Make an outlet.
Make an outlet near your oven that is out of reach from your children.
Step 6: Building the cabinet carcass.
When you have the measurements for your oven ready, you can start building its cabinet. Start by assembling the basic box of the cabinet. Build the box frame of the cabinet using a 1'x2" wood and cover it with 3/4 plywood. Make sure to build extra support for it to be able to hold through the oven. Make two of these box frames since its a double oven and join them together, or you can build it as one and make a divider in the middle. Use wood glue and nails when building a cabinet to make sure that the wood is tightly holding together.
Step 7: Secure the wall cabinet to the wall.
Apply wood glue to the front edges of the wall and secure the cabinet frame on it. Set all the nails and apply wood putty to cover the frame joints.
Step 8: Sand the wall cabinet.
Start sanding your wall cabinet with 100-grit sandpaper after the applied wood putty dries.
Step 9: Paint wall cabinet.
Paint or varnish your wall cabinet before putting in the oven.
After doing this easy project, you can now enjoy cooking in your kitchen.
