How to build base cabinets for kitchen or garage

Today I start assembly of the base cabinets. This is how to build base cabinets for kitchen or garage or any other base cabinet application. My technique anyway. There are six base units in this build and this is the first three. There are still a few things left such as support bracing and installing the backs but I will do that later.

If you like the little tool I use for holding cabinet parts you may enjoy this video where show how to make one and how awesome it really is! :"Making Handy"

If you like this video be sure to check out the entire series from episode one on. Here is the playlist!

The title of this video should be Building Cabinets episode 7 but how to build base cabinets for kitchen or garage may actually show up in search.

Boys-o-boys, you’re some organised worker Tony, you’re an inspiration mate. Enjoyed the music as always. Thanks again.

Really interesting and informative. I can tell you have done that a time or two. I was surprised you didn’t use any glue, no need? Enjoyed the video.

    Hey Paul! I’ve found the pocket screws work fine without any glue for the box construction. Most glue won’t work on pre finished plywood anyway. Thanks for watching!

Wow! Thanks for the shout out! That is grand of you, mate! I didn’t notice until the end of the video, so it also kind of spoiled my original comment. Here it is: I love that little jig you use for standing up the panels. Such an easy, but extremely practical thing. Also the way you edit to the music may challenge this whole “no music” thing that is so popular now. Great vid, and thanks again for the spotlight / shout out. Cheers.

    Thanks Nomad! There’s a video about the holding tool you may enjoy! I didn’t realize “no music” was the happening thing. Maybe that’s why my videos aren’t very popular! Oh well, I love music! 🙂

Nice work! I’m working on a set of shop cabinets now and it makes me appreciate how efficient your work flow is

    Thanks Dave! If I lived a little closer I’d come by and give you a hand. We’d have your cabinets up in no time! 🙂

You were asking about the toe kick depth earlier. I don’t know of a standard, but the shop where I’m learning is using 2.5 inches.
I’m in your play list, so sometimes I barely get done before the change.
