A kitchen or bathroom renovation raises the value of a home, and kitchen cabinets (and bathroom vanities) are a large part of the cost. Yet cabinets and vanities are surprisingly straightforward to build. Strong, attractive and durable cabinets can be built for a fraction of what they cost to buy. In this heavily illustrated guide, Steve Cory shows how to build sturdy face-frame cabinets in a variety of styles (Shaker, slab, cottage) and also includes a chapter on building bathroom vanities. Steve takes readers through each step of the project clearly explaining step-by-step how a less skilled builder with basic tools can build each component. Then he takes the reader through more complicated construction techniques, making this book both accessible to the novice but also interesting and informative for more skilled builders.
