January 23, 2013 67 Comments Last night I did something that I’ve wanted to do for quite a long time.  I figured out how to make cabinet doors without using any kind of special tools! My original plan was to just add some pretty trim to the existing doors and drawers, and then paint everything.  That definitely would have improved the doors, but there are two reasons I decided not to go that direction. So next I took this really small trim (I have no idea what this is for, but it’s incredibly cheap, and rounded on both edges), and cut pieces to cover the edges of the door. And the thickness turned out perfectly!  The thickness of the new door is only slightly more than the thickness of the old door.
I am thrilled that you posted this AND with pictures, I am dying to do this to my kitchen, cabinets and have not been able to visualize it. Sooooo excited to see someone tackle making door fronts as I have 33 kitchen cupboards that are in desperate need of a makeover but the pocketbook doesn’t have enough in it to get ready-made.
Cabinet doors can make or break the look of your kitchen or bathroom cabinets - and the longevity of the cabinets.
Put on the desired finish, install the hinges and doorknob and you are ready to hang the cabinet door.
Cut the door panel insert slightly less than the size you need to allow for wood expansion and contraction. Begin assembly of the door by applying glue with a brush to the inside of the stile where the rail meets it and insert the rail tenon.
Sand the door, finish as desired, install the hardware and hang the new cabinet door on the cabinet frame.


The style of panel cabinet door you want can vary from the flat one described here to raised and glass panel doors. Step up the look of slab cabinet doors by adding molding to the edge or offset from the edge of the door. Jennifer Bridgman of the home improvement blog The Chronicles of Home says you can make your own DIY glass cabinet doors.
Here’s her step-by-step tutorial, along with lots of photos of how she built the cabinet doors. My solution to this little problem was to gather up some simple materials from The Home Depot and build my own DIY glass cabinet doors.
I don’t give exact measurements for the cutting of the wood in this project because the size of the doors will depend on the size of the shelf or cabinet you’re working with. Use a miter saw to cut the horizontal and vertical pieces for the doors with straight cuts at each end.
Mark where you want your cabinet pulls to go and drill holes, then attach the pulls using included screws. Mark where the hinges will go on the doors and drill small pilot holes, then attach the hinges to the door. Mark where the hinges will screw into the cabinet or bookshelf frame, and drill small pilot holes, then attach the hinges to the frame. Use the plastic sheet cutting tool (some Home Depot stores may offer cutting in-store) to cut the acrylic sheet to fit inside the lip between the hobby board and 1x3s on the backs of the doors.


You need to realize that this type of cabinet door requires more tools, skill and time to create. The glass front doors will keep out the dust, plus the glass retains that open look and makes the shelves look like a pretty display case. Also, I opted for acrylic sheet instead of real glass here, because the doors go from floor level up, and I have two young daughters who I definitely did not want to see go crashing through a pane of glass!
Make sure to allow space for the hinges and some room between the doors if they are stacked on top of each other. Follow our Storage and Organize board on Pinterest for more great storage ideas and DIY projects, too. This tutorial will show you how to DIY colorful holiday decor using tomato cages, paint and a few basic supplies.
I wish you had done this a year ago when my hubby was making doors for the front of our tub- we just ended up with plain boards rounded on the edges.
Panel doors consist of two stiles (side pieces) and two rails (top and bottom) along with a panel that sits between them.
