Then, using butt joints, screw through the cabinet base and into the edge of the panels. Pilot holes are a good idea here.[7]

    Join the sides to the bottom. Glue and then secure (again with butt joints) the side panels to the base and bottom structure, fitting the toe-kick in with the gap you made. Make sure all of the edges are flush. Clamps and angle measuring tools can make this easier.[8]
  • 9
    Secure the top brace panels. Next glue and secure (so many butt joints) the back brace panel so that it will sit flat against the wall. The front brace panel should be placed so that it will sit flush with the countertop, once the countertop is placed.[9]

    Nail on a back panel. Measure and then screw a 1/2"" MDF.[10]
  • 11
    Reinforce the joints. Now, reinforce all the joints with corner brackets and screws.[11]
  • 12
    Install the shelves. Measure, mark, and level locations for at least four corner brackets (two to a side) and then slide in the shelves. Wait to add the shelves for wall cabinets.
  • 13
    Add the facing panels. Assemble the facing panels into one unit like you would assemble a picture frame. You can use flat joints or you can miter them. Pocket holes, dowels, or mortise and tenon joints should be used, according to your skill level, to join the pieces together. Nail and the countersink the nails to attach the completed face to the cabinet.[12]
  • 14
    Place the cabinets. Place the cabinets in their location. Screw through the back panel and into the wall studs to secure the cabinet it place. Upper cabinets may require more support, such as L brackets (than can be covered up by a backsplash), if you plan to put heavy items such as dishes in the cabinet.[13]
  • 15
    Install the doors. Install the doors onto the face panels as recommended by their manufacturer. You can also install drawers, but this can become quite complex and is not recommended for a beginner.[14]

    • Question
      What material is used for the back panel of furniture?
      Community Answer
      Masonite, you can find it at most large home improvement stores. It comes in 4x8 sheets but some stores carry smaller selections.
    • Question
      How do I know what type of wood to buy for the face?
      Community Answer
      It all depends on what you want the end finish to look like. You could use 1x4 common board and a router for the inside edge, or you could go with a molding of your choice.

      How long will it take to build a cabinet?
      Community Answer
      That depends on many variables, including your skill level, your tools and the size of the cabinet you''ve cut everything, assemble all of the panels together using wood glue, and secure them with butt joints. Finally, nail the back panel on the cabinet, add the facing panels, and install the doors.
