Kitchens are the ultimate DIY woodworking project, offering the best return on investment! Demonstrating how woodworkers can approach the complex job of designing and making built-in cabinets for kitchens, family rooms, and home offices, this technical handbook provides meticulously detailed drawings, clear instructions, and hundreds of professional tips for saving time, materials, aggravation, and money. Bob Lang offers practical, hands-on, how-to information and guidance for building traditional face-frame cabinets as well as constructing contemporary frameless Euro-style cabinets.
You'll learn how to measure rooms and design fitting cabinetry that considers both function and aesthetics, how to develop working shop drawings and cutting lists, and how to work with materials as varied as solid wood and plastic laminate. Technical instructions for cutting and joining the basic box, as well as for fitting it to drawer stacks, sinks, corners, appliances, and islands, are also included, as are detailed steps for sanding, finishing, and installing each piece. This second edition also offers a colorful new 16-page idea gallery with photographs of finished cabinets.
