Wow! I restored Porsche, and Mercedes Benz cars at my shop in California, then built prototype high performance cars for Chrysler and Dodge for Carol Shelby, I have to say, you have done a great job showing how to not just build cabinets, but show how to use the tools you used, and why! Awesome job!

Very informative

Larry James says:

This is a great video. Very clear and thorough. watched it 3 or 4 times already. Went out and bought a dovetail jig, pocket screw set, and new dado set after watching this. I'm fairly skilled with wood work, but this "how to" video is fantastic. I'm building a new house in Phoenix, and what me and the wife want would have to be custom built. Going for a different look with gloss black cabinets doors and matte black quartz countertops. The estimates were all north of $18k for custom built cabinets/installation with lacquer finish. It's a decent size, 10×20, but there's no way I was going to drop that much for cabinets.

Found a good plywood supplier, now just need to figure out what type wood would be best to take a black stain & lacquer for the doors. (Or tinted lacquer if I can find someone who does it.) We still want to see some of the grain, but flat and toned down. I've sprayed a bunch of cars & car parts, but trying to replicate that finish on wood will be a little more challenging I'm sure. Going with the euro-style with hydraulic hinges and slab doors. Project already started….

Something I was shown years ago install and level your toe kick as a separate single unit make it level and place the base cabinets on the level base, no leveling each one.
Thanks for the great video.
