Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Improving the kitchen adds not only to a home's resale value but also to its comfort. Unfortunately, such improvement is also very expensive. Professional woodworker Tolpin shows how to build and install cabinets and, to a lesser degree, covers kitchen design and laminate countertop construction. The author's straightforward text, combined with numerous photographs and illustrations, should enable most woodworkers to make their own cabinetry. Other types of storage furniture can be made using information gleaned from this source. Especially rewarding when used in conjunction with an excellent kitchen design book such as Steve Thomas's This Old House Kitchens: A Guide to Design and Renovation (LJ 12/91), this book is recommended for most libraries.-Jonathan Hershey, Akron-Summit Cty. P.L., Ohio

    Reccomended as a first text on cabinetmaking

    The author not only gives the basics of constructing many types of popular kitchen cabinets, he also gives suggested tool lists, cabinet design tips, installation tips for assembled cabinets, and instructions for installing a few common types of countertops over the installed cabinets. The only real dissapointment is he doesn't tell you how to make the gorgeous cabinets on the front cover! This cabinetmaking book should be your first. The only other thing you need is some basic woodworking experience, and the tools themselves.
