Overview

Expert advice from start to finish

When you build your own cabinets you're not just saving money. You also can improve upon the materials and construction used in factory-made cabinets, and get exactly the sizes you want. And with the techniques that Udo Schimdt demonstrates and explains, you can incorporate custom details in your cabinets to make them even more distinctive. Arched doors, custom cornice treatments, oversize pantry cabinets, and solid wood end panels are just a few of the options to consider.



If you're comfortable using a router, tablesaw, and drill, this book will show you how to build beautiful cabinets in your own workshop.

What's inside:

  • Designing custom cabinetry to suit your space and budget
  • Building drawers and doors in a variety of different styles
  • Installing Euro-style concealed hinges and drawer slides
  • Improving storage and convenience with special hardware and accessories
  • Selecting and installing a wide range of countertops

The book is packed with valuable information, techniques, and tips. The illistrations are very detailed and helpful. The book is well edited and easy to find exactly what you are looking for. I found that the author offers different techniques for each application and goes into details about the different techniques in constructing cabninets and doors. The author gives tips, advise, and methods on speciality cabinets and hardware as well, giving you the home builder some very good and creative ideas for not only your kitchen but anywhere cabinet storage is needed. In my opion this is a valuable addition to anyone's library, from the novice to the skilled master.

I was quite impressed with the amount of information in this book. I did notice a photo caption that was incorrect at the start of the book (wrong photo with caption)and that made me more attentive. The book did put me at ease because I was not told to go out and purchase expensive tools that were not already in my small shop, but it did help me to locate some things I was trying to find. I saved at least $1000 by not purchasing pre-made genuine imitation wood cabinets, and even more because my kitchen can't accept "standard" sized ones. Great book to keep handy for almost any project!
