Build Custom Face Frame Cabinet Boxes
Custom Cabinetmaking Series, Volume 1

Building custom cabinets has never been easier, faster, and more certain. This video leads you to woodworking success step by simple step.

You’ll start with the face frame—one of the easiest components to visualize—and use that assembly as a gauge to generate all the other parts of the cabinet with a minimum of measuring. And when you don’t measure, you can’t make a measuring mistake.

You’ll then discover how to cut the parts quickly and accurately, in a logical sequence. This minimizes the number of tool setups and makes the most of your time in the shop. You’ll also see how to assemble cabinets fast and square without recruiting a helper or using hundreds of pounds of clamps. And along the way, you’ll pick up shop tips and tool advice to save you time and money.

Now you can confidently build:

  • Wall and base cabinets to organize your shop and garage,
  • Built-ins, such as bookcases, that multiply storage space and increase your home’s value,
  • Vanity cabinets and storage units for the bathroom,
  • A new custom kitchen at a fraction of the cost of purchased cabinets,
  • Furniture such as dressers, desks, entertainment centers and more.
