This book review is from the March 2013 issue of our LumberJocks’ eMag

Fox Chapel Publishing is donating another book for a free draw! (See below for details)


How To Make Kitchen Cabinets


This book is another “everything you need to know and all in one place” resource! From selecting right style for your kitchen, to building the cabinets, adding the hardware and finishing touches, to working with existing cabinets.

The book is filled with step-by-step instructions and photos as well as tips such as making a gap look like it was intended.

My favourite part of the book makes me wish that I had read it BEFORE we added pull-out shelves to all of our kitchen cupboards. One of the options for such shelving is to create adjustable supports. Being able to raise/lower the shelves based on contents would have been an added bonus. The toe-kick drawers are also intriguing and can still be added to my “future ideas” list!

Overall: 2 thumbs up!!



One random draw winner will receive a copy of the book.

Deadline: April 10, 2013

Another big thank-you to Fox Chapel Publishing for their continued donation of books for free draws here at

Thanks for the heads up!
I live near Fox Chapel and went to their warehouse over lunch to get a copy.
They have a ‘scratch and dent’ shelf and got this book for $9 and change. Not bad! Lots of other books on the shelves but I didn’t have time to browse.
