This One Day Cabinet Build is definitely at the top of my list of favorite projects to date. There is nothing I love more than being able to use leftover scraps and supplies we have laying around. These plans can also be cut from full sheets of new plywood if you don’t have the scraps. If you have scrap pieces laying around that can fit the sizes, cut them accordingly first and then see what you need. If you just want to buy the supplies for this project. The instructions/supply list below make it easy for you to buy everything you need before you get started.
This is a very beginner friendly first time cabinet build. If you have never built a cabinet, don’t stress. I will walk you through it with written instructions in these plans. I want you to feel confident with these plans that you can tackle this project from start to finish. This project is definitely doable to do solo. I always say thought, the more the merrier. Grab a friend or partner and have fun building something together. That’s what I tell my husband, everything is more fun when we do it together. I think that must be how I wrap him into doing projects with me time and time again.
There are a few tools that you will absolutely need to make this project happen. A Drill, Pocket Hole Jig, and Circular Saw/Table Saw. Outside of these tools it is up to you what else you may choose you need to use to help you complete the cabinet. Ok, let’s get at this cabinet build. Fair warning…be prepared to amaze yourself after you finish this project! It’s amazing what we are capable of if we tell ourselves we can and just start. Done is better than perfect!!!
