    Hey guys, I'm pretty new to woodworking, especially on the furniture side. I got into wood working about a year ago when I built my first plywood drawer cabinet. I then followed up with an ambitious project of rebuilding our 20x26 deck from the footers up. This really got me interested in...

    Hello! I am planning my first frameless cabinets for my kitchen - it took convincing to get my wife to allow me to do them, so I cant screw up :wink: I'm struggling to decide on the materials. I've built some prototypes in my shop for tool stands as a proof of concept. I used birch plywood...

    We are building shaker cabinets, but we made the insets different for ease and looks, and now we're paying for it. Basically, instead of using ply insets and doing tongue and groove to insert them, we got 1 by X boards. So they range from 1x3 to 1x10 boards. It looks nicer, but what we did was...

    Previous owner installed sink base cabinets to use as a work table. There is no sink- just the countertop. Is there a way to convert the false front drawers into real drawers? There is nothing behind them. When the doors are open, it's a giant 35"w, 28"h gaping hole, but only 21"h is usable...

    Hello, I purchased my lower kitchen cabinets last week from Conestoga. I ordered unfinished to save myself a couple thousands. I've finished many new pieces of furniture and refinished old furniture the past 35 years, but this will be my first kitchen cabinet project. I already have a Graco...

    Hello all, I have built one prototype cabinet that I really like. Originally I thought I would hang the cabinet from the wall via one french cleat made from 3/4" plywood. Now I am a bit concerned about the cabinet's empty weight let alone once it is loaded down. So I was thinking about french...
