Yes, cabinets are those things that make up the storage in a kitchen. And they are the built-in storage spaces in your bathroom, den and other rooms. But cabinets are also free-standing storage units like bookcases. Building cabinets is really building boxes and there are simple techniques to create solid, quality cabinets that look great.

Learn easy steps for making doors and drawers for your cabinets; how to make counter tops, install hardware and more.
