    Thanks dudes. CharlieB it's not that difficult building it. Getting a good finish on it is a bit tricky especially inside the unit when the spray fumes swirl around inside the unit. That's the bugger to get rite. Did allot of sanding today. Worked of the plugs (dowells) and added the balau hardwood base (plinth) will ad some more pics tomorrow.

    Thanks Ivan. Yes only a 44 x 100 brace and a 44 x 100 brace at the top going to the backing. The front brace going across the unit is also double. One inside and one on top laminated together. The backing is also 22mm and is inside the frame. So no chance of screws tearing out. And everything was screwed together with 8 x 60 chipboard screws and glued at all joints. Apparently there is going a craps load of equipment in this cabinet. So wanted to create more usable space.

    The holes drilled is 3.5mm then ir gets sunken with a 8mm about 6mm deep. Some cold glue in the holes and tap in the dowells with a hammer and let it set. Cut as much off with a hacksaw and beltsand flush. No need for boddyfiller then. You also get a plug cutter that you can use RO make your own plugs and works out cheaper than bought beechwood dowells.

    Ive just seen your signature is Hansen Cabinets, my surname is Hansen so does that mean I get a cut of the profits? :headbang: I could use a little extra cash.
