Traditional or Contemporary?

The biggest decision the cabinetmaker will face is whether to build traditional face-frame cabinets, or European frameless cabinets (32mm cabinets). Don’t make the mistake of thinking that appearance is the biggest different between the two! Learn the important differences in construction, and how you can build in either style to achieve the finished look you want.

Boxes, Drawers, Slides, and More

Regardless of the type of cabinet you decide to build, a rigid box will be at the core of each one. The hardest-working part of any project is the drawer, opening and closing on a slide many times per day. Learn how to design and build every essential part of a cabinet project from boxes and drawers to frames and panels with the in-depth instructions in this book.

Counters, Bases, & Finishing

Beyond just the cabinets, learn to make, laminate, and install countertops, build separate bases for the cabinets to sit on, apply finishings, and install your cabinets correctly. From the planning stage all the way through installation, Bob Lang gives you a firm foundation for designing and building your kitchen cabinets from scratch.
