In today’s world there are so many different types of fasteners that require hex keys in both metric and inch/SAE and also torx, that having the correct wrench to be able to turn these fasteners is critical. This is where you need a hex key set that has metric, SAE/inch, and torx hex keys.

To start your rev a shelf lazy susan assembly remove all contents from the cabinet box. Place the top section of the cabinet box on your working area to ensure the cabinet does not get scratched. First, reinstall the clips onto the bottom panel using the predrilled pilot holes. Once all the clips have been installed, place that panel off to the side. Next, locate the two sections of doors and four hinges. Place the two doors face down with the two predrilled holes for the hinges on the left side. Using the pilot holes install the longer hinges to connect the doors. Next, install the second set of hinges. Once the doors have been assembled, place the door off to the side. Locate the two pieces of the top and install the clips on the backside. Connect the two pieces using the dowels or screws provided and place it off to the side. Place the face frame of the cabinet face down on your working area. There is a large and small face frame for this cabinet. The larger face frame has dado cut located on the sides and bottom to accommodate the other panels. Take your clips and attach them at the top of the face frame. The smaller face frame will have two clips. Place a bead of Elmer’s or Titebond wood glue in the dado of the face frame, locate the side panel and install clips in the designated area on the interior of the cabinet. Install that panel finished side out into either section of the face frame. Use the clips that you pre-installed to attach the side panel to the face frame.
Alternatively, a pneumatic staple gun which can be purchased at Lowe’s or the Home Depot can be used to fasten the two pieces together by placing a staple every four to five inches. When I called up Hey Siri on my mobile cell phone and asked what was the best value in a stapler, the recommendation was the Bosch unit which I bought. Locate the other side panel of face frame and repeat these steps using the smaller side of the face frame section. Install the bottom panel into the dado as of the side panel and face frame. Fasten the bottom panel to the side panel and face frame using the pre-installed clips. Alternatively, you can also apply staples to these areas to attach the panels together. Now take the right side of the face frame and attach it to the completed side. Connect the dados together and use the clips you pre-installed to attach all panels. Alternatively, you can use staples to attach the panels together. Once the two sides are connected use the space in the face frame to install the black screws. Find the two predrilled holes where the two face frame pieces meet and install the screws provided. Use the pre-installed clip on the underside of that joint to fasten together.
Now start the installation of the backside panel. Start with the side that is nearest you and install it dado side down. Ensure the dado is seated into the bottom inside panel. Use the pre-installed clips to fasten the panels together on the underside of the cabinet. Connect the clip to this panel. Alternatively, you can use a nailer to fasten the side panel to the backside panel by inserting brads from the side. Locate the predrilled holes on the back of this panel and install the screws provided. Now take the back panel and place that side down and insert screws into the predrilled pilot holes. Then fasten the clip you reinstalled on the bottom panel, locate the last panel and install the same way. Installation of the top is next and can be installed with a nail or clips using the clips on the top fasten to the side panels. Install the wooden stabilizing blocks in the same locations. Locate the basket. Start by installing into the predrilled hole located on the bottom panel. Place the pin into the stand and slide the cap on top. Next place, the basket case onto the installed pole. Install the second pin cap and then insert the basket top onto the pole. Place the small section of the basket, into the installed pole. Install the last, wooden into support the cabinet using the pilot holes and clips. Next, install the top part of the pole to the wooden support using the pilot holes. Finally, extend the pre-installed hinges to an open position and using the pilot holes in the silver rounded screw bracket, fasten the door to the face frame. Attach the door bumpers to the top and bottom of the door. If the door is not square. Use the adjustments crews to correct. Now the cabinet is complete. Clean the cabinet of any unwanted glue or debris.
