Wood medicine cabinets – To install an insert kit, it is necessary to create a box with 2×4 woods that is placed inside the opening of drywall to support the cabinet. The goal is to create a wooden box behind the drywall. A first aid kit designed to be embedded in the wall has a flange that fits against the face of the wall for a finished look. Most insert, or recessed, medicine cabinets are designed to fit into a 2×4 wall space, which typically requires 3 1/2 inches to accommodate the depth of insertion. Measure the back of the medicine cabinet that will fit into the hole in the wall. Add 1/2 inch to the height and width measurements to determine the recess dimensions. Some drug cabinets come with a template or have the specified recess opening dimension.
Wood medicine cabinets, draw the hole configuration of the wall face with a pencil or marker, following your measurements. Cut the drywall with a spatula and remove the drywall section. If a vertical pillar is in the way, cut it with a reciprocating saw to match the configuration of your recess. Cut pieces of 2×4 woods to create a box behind the drywall. Measure the wood to coordinate with the size of the recreational opening. The two parts will be the length of the vertical edges of the opening. The top and bottom pieces will be the size of the horizontal opening, plus 2 inches on each side, to form a solid box.
Wood medicine cabinets, slide the sections of the wood behind the drywall, which they hold so that the inside edge of the pieces are flush with the edge of the break opening. Attach the 2×4 sections to the inside of the drywall using drywall screws from the exposed side of the drywall through the 2×4. Add construction adhesive on the edge of these parts to help secure the assembly. Slide the medicine cabinet into the opening so that it is inside the box. Insert the mounting screws through the holes in both sides of the kit. This grants the kit for blocking the wood. Level the refrigerator and make adjustments. Tighten the mounting screws.
