From the Publisher
From simple kitchen cabinet up-grades to gutting the kitchen and starting over, this is the book you will be referring to. From the first sketches to the finishing touches the American Woodworker writers have it all covered and beautifully illustrated. The book is rife with ideas and shortcuts to make your new kitchen both beautiful and efficient. You'll find ideas like making the perfect joint in plastic laminate, utilizing every inch of space like the toe kick.

Brad Holden shows you how to add roll-outs in existing or new cabinets while Tim Johnson shows you how to select and install those European hinges.
