Woodworking rite of passage: Build your own Kitchen

Every woodwork dreams of building his own kitchen. I am no exception. While I did not get to work on my actual kitchen yet, I recently complete a kitchenette in my laundry room. This project helped me build confidence.

Getting the job done is not hard, but requires a lot of time. To help the members of Hingmy, I have written tutorials for each one of the steps. These threads should give you a good idea of what's involved.

1) Build upper cabinets

2) Build lower cabinets

3) Build doors

4) Build drawers

5) Build and install the countertop

6) Install the sink and do the plumbing

7) Installation

After reading through all this information the project may seem daunting. The skills involved in building cabinets can be mastered by the entry level woodworker. Be warned, however. Kitchen projects are easy to start, but harder to finish. If you do not dedicate yourself to the project, your garage will be full of half finished cabinets.

Let us know how your project is coming along.
