From the Publisher
This is the eighth book in the "Back to Basics" series from Fox Chapel and it is a great series of books as a reference for the professional cabinetmaker and a great series for the starting woodworker.
It is said that the best way to increase the value of a home is to update your kitchen and or bathroom and for the DIYer this is the book to get things started.
There are five chapters in the book, 'Carcass Construction', 'Frame & Panel Construction', 'Drawers', 'Doors' and 'Legs'. Each chapter is liberally illustrated and contains excellent written instructions and tips to make sure that the work is accurately performed. Drawers are particularly difficult to make so that they glide smoothly but the advice given here assures you that they will. Keep this book close to your workbench!
Part of the "Back to Basics" series, this guide to cabinetry assumes too much previous knowledge to be an introductory volume. There is little detail on wood selection and power tools needed for cutting and construction. Although the book covers a wide range of information, step-by-step instruction is lacking. With clean illustrations, a logical organization, and great shop and tool tips sprinkled throughout. A better choice, featuring a variety of projects, is Ultimate Guide to Cabinets, Shelves, and Home Storage Solutions.
