Building Your Own Kitchen Cabinets: If you have ever considered building your own kitchen cabinets and aborted the idea by convincing yourself that you have no woodworking tools, or I know nothing about wood staining and finishing, or little about cabinet making in general, then read on and believe me when I say it can be done with minimal tools.
We start with the base. Cabinets which rest on the floor are supported by some kind of a base. This base could be an entirely enclosed base, scrolled based, bracketed feet or it could be a set of legs. Next are the adjustable feet that can be secured to the bottom of the cabinet by having the leg base screwed onto the cabinet bottom. This can also be attached by means of a drill through the cabinet bottom at definite locations. With these adjustable feet, the cabinets are no longer scribed to the floor for leveling. These adjustable feet help you minimize the problem of depressed parts on the floor. Also they come in much variation depending on the type of furniture it is being used. There are also anti-vibration mounts, which lessens tremors that cause disruption and extreme damages.
This leads into the second point. Shop online. Studies show that you can buy kitchen cabinets at about a 30% discount online. The major cabinet manufacturers, such as Kraftmaid, Aristokraft, etc., have a huge overhead in marketing and advertising, which leads to increased prices. When buying online, you want to look RTA kitchen cabinets, from this you will save even more. And that is the next way to save money.
Aside from the two components, we have cabinet compartments. As the term suggests, it is the subdivision of the space in an area. Compartments may be open, like in open shelving; they may be enclosed by one or more doors; or they may contain one or more drawers. Some cabinets hold secret compartments; this is for safekeeping to which access is not obvious. The advantage of having too many compartments in a single cabinet is that all assorted thing to be placed inside it will be accommodated. Some cabinets consist of compartments in the back where some other items are stored and can be brought to the front by rotating the shelf.
Now it would be nice to have a complete woodworking shop all ready to just punch out a set of kitchen cabinets on demand, but that is probably not the case and here is the alternative to the solution.
