Overview

The Perfect Guide To building built-ins. From bookcases that flank a fireplace to a cabinet designed to display family heirlooms, built-ins not only reduce clutter, they can add permanent value to a home. Stressing the vital importance of both form and function, Robert Settichs complete guide offers authoritative advice on how to design, plan, and build custom built-ins that suit the style of any environment. His practical approach simplifies even the trickiest jobs, so each project is within the reach of anyone with even the most basic woodworking skills. But Settich does not ignore the construction challenges that might arise, clearly dealing with everything from uneven floors to walls that are out of plumb. The long-time how-to author even demonstrates how to turn stock cabinetry into a built-in that looks custom made.
