Step 7: Attach Subtop

Screw the new subtop to the top of the cabinet using a C-clamp to hold it in place. Glue and staple 4" x 2" x 2" pieces of wood underneath the subtop at each corner.

Step 8: Cut and Modify Drawers

Mark on the drawers where you will cut to leave space for the sink and pipes. Using a saw, cut out the shape. Build a frame that surrounds the cutout on the drawer, so it's the same height as the existing drawer. This will allow for functional drawers. Glue and staple the frame to the drawers. Repeat this step for all drawers.

Step 9: Reattach Back of Cabinet and Cut Out Holes

Using an electric screwdriver, replace the back of the cabinet. Measure the location for the pipes and mark on the back of the cabinet. Using a drill bit large enough to accommodate the size of your pipes, drill a hole into the back of the cabinet.
