How should I hang this cabinet??
OK, got a 12" wall cabinet, and an end shelf for either side.

This is not what we bought, but it looks just the same to give you an idea of what the end shelves are like:

Face frame of the main wall cabinet sticks out about 1/4" past the cabinet side. Sides of that cabinet are 1/2" thick, as are the mating panels of the side shelf units. would you hang?? I'm figuring to hang the 24" main cabinet, then add the 2 side shelves...pull the face frame tight, and shim 1/4" in back... What is the best way to attach them together? Screws, barrel bolts, etc???

Tools, aside from the 'normal' stuff, got a kreg jig and also biscuit joiner available.

If it were me I'd use barrel nuts and bolts but I suppose if you're not going to put anything heavy on them then you can probably get away with screwing them on the sides of the cabinet from inside the 24" cabinet so you have no holes showing.

And to the wall, if there is a stud there.

I built the house about 10 years ago, and had the good sense to put blocking in where we mught hang stuff later, including for cabs above the terlits, where this cabinet goes. Sure has made things easier as I finally get around to these things.
