Overview

Build your own kitchen cabinets!

You don't need a showroom full of equipment or expertise in calculus to build your own kitchen cabinets. In fact, Danny Proulx's concise, easy-to-follow instructions enable you to create incredible kitchens with just a few power tools—a table saw, circular saw, router and drill.

Completely revised and updated, Build Your Own Kitchen Cabinets, Second Edition, provides start-to-finish guidelines for crafting upper and lower cabinets, plus practical information on kitchen design, material selection and tool shortcuts.

Proulx's instruction is practical, easy to understand and time-tested, refined in his own shop, and taught by him in countless seminars and workshops. You'll learn how to plan, design, construct and install your own complete handmade kitchen, from simple cabinets and over-the-sink cupboards to lazy-Susan shelving, stemware, storage and more:

  • Combine the beauty of traditional face-frame cabinetry with the strength and simplicity of European cabinetry and hardware
  • Build drawers, pull-outs and flip-outs to maximize storage space
  • Use European hinges, adjustable legs and other specialized hardware to take the guesswork out of construction and installation
  • Use simple butt joints to build strong cabinets quickly
  • Customize your cabinets' looks with a variety of door styles, countertops and finishes
Page after page, Danny Proulx proves that you can build your own beautiful kitchen cabinets.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Kitchens are the most heavily used area in the average home, so they are a popular area for remodeling; it doesn't hurt that remodeling costs can frequently be recouped if the house is sold. A professional kitchen remodeler and author of several furniture-building titles, Proulx shows readers how to build functional kitchen cabinets out of sheetstock with hardwood face frames. His simple construction method coupled with straightforward, step-by-step instructions and clear color photos should allow any motivated do-it-yourselfer to build attractive cabinetry. Proulx's designs incorporate such labor-saving features as adjustable legs that are hidden by a removable kickplate, and readers are shown how to add highly desirable "custom" features such as islands and pantry cabinets. Because of its simplified approach, this title cannot cover every style of cabinetmaking or show how to make every feature on the market. However, it does offer a system that is efficient and accessible to most woodworkers and is recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

Everything you need to know and nothing you dont. This is a good technique. Not the only technique.

This is a great guide to get you on your way to designing and creating your dream kitchen. Another great option of creating a beautiful kitchen is by actually buying the modular cabinets at a distributor and installing them yourself. It will provide you an easier way to achieve a more finished product.
