Very Comprehensive, Well written.
I found this book very comprehensive – very detailed. It does assume a basic level of woodworking skills. The book covers kitchen layout and takes it from there, everything a comprehensive book on cabinetry should be, except making cabinet carcasses. I don’t recall it covering countertops beyond its coverage on applying hardwood and plastic laminate veneers to cabinet faces. It covers choosing between common hardwoods and stain, including the same wood with several different stains, refurbishing drawers and drawer slides, and the issues of applying veneers to rail and stile framed panel doors. I don’t recall it covering frameless cabinets faces; that should be straight forward, but it covers European hinges and installation. And I don’t recall it covering, beyond staining, cabinet finishes.

I studied up on making my own kitchen cabinets for my new house, but lately I’ve been considering just customizing store bought cabinets, so I bought this book. The book is well organized and very readable.. I’m very happy with it!

The book was well written with lots of great ideas. The book not only speaks to cabinet refacing but gives helpful information for kitchen layout. A good resource for anyone wanting to upgrade their kitchen without completely changing out the original cabinets.

The info listed is clear and easy to understand. Has many great ideas and seems to cover many of the basics. Some of the info was a little dated, but, over all it was good.
