As the other reviewers have noted,...

David T from Cypress, CA Posted September 26, 2012
As the other reviewers have noted, this book lacks a bit in the completeness department, however, it can still be a uniquely valuable resource for the beginning or do-it-yourself cabinetmaker. Mr. Piontkowski covers the raw basics of building kitchen-type cabinets in a few chapters up front, and then the rest of the book is devoted to full plans and cut lists for modular-type cabinets, and there lies the book's true value..No more spending hours working up drawings, or calculating part dimensions {or, rather, miscalculating them!}. The really tedious planning work is done for you, so all you need to do is to select which types and sizes of cabinet modules you want, and then follow the cutting list. The only serious drawback I have found is that you're constrained to build your cabinets the way Mr. Piontkowski builds his cabinets, which is with an integrated toe kick and 1/2" thick structural back, as opposed to European styles..The book is ideally made for use in the shop, with a hard cover for durability and spiral bound so it lays flat on the bench {or photocopier}. Each plan includes an exploded drawing and complete cutting list, and most remaining questions are answered in the first few chapters about how to build the cabinets.

This is the pre-school primer of cabinet making. I guess the title "The Complete Cabinet Makers Reference" book led me to think it was more than a beginning woodworkers instruction manual for building boxes from sheet goods. Complete means a lot more to me than what this book provides. A true disappointment.

This book has a great layout...

This book has a great layout and is easy to follow.It is geared to only building sheet-stock cabinets. I was looking for a cabinetry reference for cabinets with hardwood front. I made the adjustments and everything came out great.
