Hello All,

Here’s a couple of pic’s of a base cabinet that I’ve started for our kitchen remodel. The base is seven (7)foot long. I’m making it out of Oak Plywood 3/4 inch, height is thirty-two (32), and the depth is seventeen and three quarters (17 3/4) inches. I’ll post more as I progress, I have a lot of running around to do lately and haven’t been able to dedicate too much time in my shop. Well ya’ll take care, your brother in woodworking John

Looking good, Pappy. I’ve got a load of plywood coming this week, so I can get started on my kitchen cabinets. Using pretty much the same style design as yours. I don’t like putting backs on the cabinets, just a ledger board to mount them to the wall. Eliminates one place for bugs to live. Keep us posted as you go.

Keep up the good work, Post the rest of the cabinets. I have a set coming up in a year or two, and need all the inspiration I can get!

one thought, if you are in a corner, butt with a bit of overlap for scribing the adjoining wall might help . . . but of course you knew that! :-)

waiting for the wall cabinet edition!

nice looking so far just one question is there a reason for them being 17 3/4 deep instead of 24 in standard depth just asking caus if you plan on puting a sink in these it will not fit and if you are buying pre made counter tops they will over hang too much
