I also recommend the Bob Lang book. I used his book and YouTube to learn how to build the cabinets that went into my kitchen.

Things I’d do differently.

- Not choose inset face frame construction for my first big cabinet project.
- Use blum slides for all drawers. I have blum for a trash can drawer and it’s awesome. The rest are KV soft close slides, while good aren’t blum.
- Use semi-gloss instead of satin for the finish.
- Construct a single face frame spanning rows of cabinets. I have one place where two cabinets are side by side and your face frame vertical must be perfect for them to close up together.
