Here is the standard shop reference on building kitchen cabinets. It covers all aspects of building a complete set of cabinets, from choosing a style for doors, to laying out the cabinets, to finishing and installing convenience hardware in the interiors. Improving the kitchen adds not only to a home's resale value, but also to its comfort.

Unfortunately, such improvement is also very expensive. Professional woodworker Tolpin shows how to build and install cabinets and, to a lesser degree, covers kitchen design and laminate countertop construction.

The author's straightforward text, combined with numerous photographs and illustrations, should enable most woodworkers to make their own cabinetry. Other types of storage furniture can be made using information gleaned from this source.
