Need to Remove a Cabinet

I need to remove this cabinet over the night stand in the bedroom.



I gave it a cursory look and couldn't find the fasteners anywhere. What's the trick to remove one of these things?

Dennis, If its anything like my coach My cabinets have false bottoms in each cabinet with a felt fabric lining the inside of it. They are designed so that you can run electrical in under that liner. They are hard to pry up because of such a tight fit, but mine will, and under that liner is the cabinet fasting 1X's. That will be how the upper cabinet is also fastened to the lower as seen in the pic. I just upgraded all my surround sound equipment and was able to access that very area for the retrofit.

Dennis,

1Doodadd is correct, there is a false bottom. At the top of the cabinet just inside the face frame there is a 1/8" finish strip that hides the screws at the front of the cabinet. it is just tacked in place, gentle prying and it should come off.

However, I think there are more screws coming down from the upper cabinet, access I think is thru the high voltage breaker panel above...not completely sure about that.

Good luck,

Okay, I pulled up the carpeted bottom shelf in the cabinet and saw lots of wires, but no screw heads. I figure the screws would have been going in left to right into the side wall or into the back wall?

I just removed a cabinet under our dinette last week. Most of the screws were in the top and bottom frames, but they were counter sunk at an angle. They are square drive screw heads and tough to take out. A long square drive bit helps.

Dennis,

Did you find the thin finish strip inside the cabinet face frame at the top I mentioned in post #3?

I don't think so. I felt around, but couldn't see very well. I need to get in there with a flashlight.
