Big fan of Kreg products. I’ve been using their pocket hole jigs for about 17 years now. Nice solid cabinet!I appreciate you showing the errors, it helps all of us. I built 8 drawers one time 1″ to wide forgetting to subtract for the drawer slides. We’ve all been there.

    I just found this video. It will be helpful for the cabinets I’m building for my shop. Thanks.

    What did it cost in materials?

    ridiculishious - May 2, 2019

    Do you know if the plans account for the drawer clearance vs the 110 degree door hinge? Like you mentioned in the video, it will change the dimensions of the drawers, and I’d like to plan ahead.

We all screw up. My grandpa used to say that the best carpenter is the one that fixes his mistakes the best.

Very-very helping me. Thanks for making this video.

Great build! It is honing some project ideas I have. One suggestion though, add nuts to your adjustable legs to lock them at the preferred height. Vibration from power tools will cause them to walk out of adjustment.

Love the video! These frameless cabinets are almost the exact kind I was going to build for my kitchen. However, only using braces for the frame and not putting a bottom shelf was something I didn’t think of. I’ve been trying to figure out ways to save wood and that was a good idea thank you. I’m not sure if it’ll work, I’m thinking about trying it on my drawers, but another thing you can think about doing instead of having to shim up your drawer rails is to Mount them to the bottom of the drawers instead of the sides. It would require installing a couple of small braces to attach the rails to and will also require using a thicker bottom to the drawer so essentially a little bit more material but on the other hand your drawers could go edge-to-edge and your rails would be hidden on the bottom.

Nice job fix this build it, U have many tools

Brad, outstanding video and project.  Your attention to detail really resonates with me.  I appreciate quality and your projects always  turn out fantastic!  Thanks for posting!!

I love those Kreg jigs and the K5 pocket hole unit. My collection of Kreg jigs is growing rapidly.

Jack Dundon - March 5, 2019

After watching this video. I think I can build my first cabinet in like 20 minutes.

Michael Keefe - March 7, 2019

Would using 120 degree hinges swing the door enough out of the way to avoid shimming the slides?

    Fix This Build That - March 14, 2019

    It could but the cost 3x as much if not 4x.i priced it and was ridiculous

Paul O - March 16, 2019

You need to try a keep foreman. I don’t miss my k5 at all. Great video!

Larry Minichello - April 18, 2019

Great video with helpful tips!
Question….any idea why slides need to be recessed 1/8 from front of cabinet. I know instructions show it but I can’t understand why? Seems like flush mount would work just as well and would look better. Any idea why?

Rob Anderson - May 14, 2019

Old video, but I’d suggest using a speed square to ride the jig saw against for those toe kicks.

Gregg Pelliccia - July 12, 2019

Awesome build! Sold me, I bought the plans and will build several of these in my garage this year! Thank you for the inspiration
