I want to make a tall cabinet for use in the bathroom and looking for some advise.
My plan is to use two kitchen wall units which are about 400mm X 720mm X330mm W X H X D
I will put one on top of the other and make it tall! 400mm W X 1440mm H X 330 D
then put 4 legs to the bottom unit and 2 doors and I have an inexpensive tall bathroom cabinet and to the Size I want.

Will this work?
What is the best way to put the two units together? No nail plus 4 screws with nuts?
will it look good where the two units meet? And any other considerations?

Many thanks

What you propose should work ok. I would use screws to hold the 2 together rather than nut and bolt. I'd put 4 from either side and you could use straight brackets on the back to secure them also. I'd also fasten back to wall at top to prevent toppling

If you buy the cabinets, they will come with Cabinet connectors. If you already bought the cabinets some time in the past and didn't use the connectors that came with them you might still have them some where - otherwise:-
