Special thanks to the kind folks over at PureBond for supplying our beautiful healthy plywood for these cabinets. Author Notes: If anything is surprising us about building your own kitchen cabinets, it's just how easy it is! It's the doors that take the time, but I'll talk about different door ideas later in this post and also in dedicated door building posts. Holy cow that looks beautiful considering its home made and not some cheap store bought cabinet. Expert advice from Bob Vila, the most trusted name in home improvement, home remodeling, home repair, and DIY.
To build the face frame of a cabinet, you’ll have to know the difference between rails and stiles. If after reading the above you’re not running off to IKEA to buy cabinets you can “build” yourself, let’s talk finishing. To build a cabinet, you’ll also want a workshop with a workbench, plenty of well-ventilated space, and a myriad of measuring tools, squares, vises, clamps, glues and safety equipment.
To get that perfect glossy finish you see in cabinet showrooms, you’ll need advanced finishing skills and, to be honest, spraying equipment. Sheet goods are what the cabinet’s “carcass” or body is made of (and sometimes its doors as well).
And this is before we even get to the doors and drawers, arguably the most challenging aspects of cabinetmaking—especially in you choose a cabinet style with raised or recessed panels. And for accurate boring of holes for hinges and other cabinet hardware, a drill press will be useful.
