Cost of cabinets – for this cabinet we used up 1/2 a sheet of 3/4″ plywood ($10 for particle board or $35 for prefinished PureBond hardwood plywood) 8 feet of 1x2s in poplar ($8) and about 30 1-1/4″ pocket hole screws and then 1/6 a sheet of 1/4″ plywood ($3 for cheap plywood or $7 for prefinished PureBond) – 

So total cost made with Particle Board for 21″ base carcass = $21
Total cost made with PureBond Prefinished Hardwood Plywood (as shown) = $50

The doors we ordered through  This door we used was hardwood framed, full overlay, raised panel, cope and stick – $54 and the drawer face $13.  

We used metabox drawer slide system = $8 for the drawer slide (and just 1/2″ plywood on bottom and back)

Hope this helps!

    i am sorry but this should be removed as the 16,000 woodworking plans is a scam.

really informative video, the music is a bit off putting though…I’d rather listen to what you are saying 🙂

Tip: Turn your nailer square to the panel instead of turning your arm for the gun to be in parallel to the joint. Angled Chisel point of pin nail or staple encounters changing ply densities causing a blow out. Square orientation the pin encounters consistent ply density and stays straight.

Thank you for this great video. Do you have the plan for download?

Vladimir Lopez - April 10, 2016

The one thing I would do different is not have the exposed edge of the plywood showing down at the toe kick. Great video think you.

when building cabinets don’t you use glue as well.?

lareinecharlotte - September 17, 2017

Love your video. Thank you for doing it. BUT PLEASE: turn off that background music!! We don’t need that noise we are trying to listen to YOU !

Stacy Stalstone - January 18, 2019

I see this video is a few year’s old so you are probably not following it anymore. I just wanted to say great video; it was exactly what we were looking for. Our fixer upper has become a pocket emptier and at the time we bought it the kitchen was empty except for a sink base. My husband and i are pretty handy so we are going to try building some base cabinets to get us by for a few years. Thanks again!
