Hey, That Was Easy!
I remember about 100 years ago when I helped make my first set of cabinets at my dad’s shop. My first thought was, “That was pretty easy!” Sometimes I have a unique grasp of the obvious…Since that time, I’ve built hundreds of cabinet boxes — some simple, some much more complex — but none of them (thankfully) required an advanced degree.
In one of today’s videos, Ernie Conover takes you through the basics of making a kitchen cabinet box and addresses a couple of ways to make the toe kick. In the other video, I look at a product from Rockler that I have found super useful (and pretty cheap, too).
So check them out and see what you think.

Attaching a strip of solid wood edge banding will not only protect the edges, it will also make the plywood look more like a solid wood panel.
Our tip for cutting plywood safely, accurately and cleanly: instead of trying to balance the sheet across a table saw, try a foam backer board.
