3 Introduction These plans for an upper kitchen cabinet are nearly identical to the kitchen cabinets I built from scratch in my first home in Philadelphia. They design has been updated to include better joinery methods and the door is overlay instead of inset, which makes the project easier for entry level woodworkers. The cabinet box is made from 3/4 thick plywood and includes a 3/4" thick back board. While this thicker back board makes the cabinet heavier and slightly more expensive, it also adds strength, rigidity and reduces the different types of plywood you ll need to purchase and manage. It s the same approach I took in my kitchen cabinets. Feel free to add additional fasteners to this project if the sides of the cabinet will be between other cabinets or walls. If you get stuck on any particular part of these woodworking plans, feel free to me at with any questions. For full cabinet building training, visit for more information on our comprehensive video training course. I hope you enjoy the challenge of building this project. R, John Gerard Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 3

4 Getting Started These woodworking plans will take you step by step through the build of a kitchen upper cabinet with a single door. The first thing you should do is read through these procedures to familiarize yourself with the materials, tools and skill requirements necessary to complete them. Tools The tools and miscellaneous supplies I used for this project include the following, some of which are optional: 1. Table Saw with 60 tooth saw blade 2. Miter Saw (also with 60 tooth saw blade) 3. Pneumatic Brad Nail Gun with Pancake Compressor 4. Pocket Screws 5. Dado Blade Set 6. Router with 23/32 cutting bit 7. Cordless Drill 8. Wood Glue 9. 3/4" Long Brad Nails 10. K-Body Clamps Dimensions This cabinet is designed to the following dimensions: 1. Width: Height: Depth: 12 This version of the cabinet has a 3/4" overlay door. Feel free to modify the plans to meet your needs. A customizable version of these plans in MS Excel is available to Cabinets from Scratch subscribers. Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 4

5 Material: Listed below in Table 1 is a list of all the lumber you ll need to build one cabinet. All of this lumber should be available at your local large hardware store (Lowe s, Home Depot, True Value, etc.). Avoid softwoods like pine for this project. Use oak or maple for stain-grade projects. Choose poplar lumber with birch plywood for paint-grade cabinets. TABLE 1: LUMBER PURCHASE LIST Item Description Width Length (in) Qty 1 3/4" Thick Birch or Oak Plywood /4 Thick Poplar or Oak Hardwood 2 ½ /2" Thick Birch or Oak Plywood Hardware: You ll also need to purchase the following material to complete your cabinet build. 1. Shelf Pins 2. Door Pulls (you pick) 3. 3/4" Overlay Hinges Preparation: To begin this project, you ll need to take your purchased lumber and cut out all of the parts listed in Table 2. Plywood parts should be cut to their final size using a combination of a table saw and a circular saw. Refer to the plywood cut sheets at the end of these plans Hardwood components however, should be cut to their final lengths, but not their final widths. All hardwood boards should be cut slightly wider than their final width on the table saw then brought down to their final width using a jointer or thickness planer. If you skip this process and simply cut your hardwood boards Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 5

6 down to their final widths using the table saw you ll end up with boards that have a very rough-cut and uneven edge. It won t look as clean or professional.

7 Machining: With all of your lumber cut to their final dimensions, we can begin machining the lumber to add grooves and pocket screw holes, which will allow us to assemble the cabinet. Face Frame Let s start with the face frame. Lay out all of your face frame boards down on a workbench. Evaluate each board to determine which side looks best. Using a pencil, lightly mark the better side so you know what side is which. Flip all of the boards over. Drill two pocket screw holes on both ends of the backsides of the Top Rail and the Bottom Rail. Refer to Figure 1 for an illustration of pocket screw hole locations. The stiles then get a 1/4 deep by 23/32 wide groove down the length of the back. These grooves will allow the cabinet box to recess and attach to the face frame during assembly. This groove needs to be located 1/4 in from the outside edge of the stiles. Figure 1 illustrates what the back of the face frame will look like once assembled. You don t need to assemble it at this point. Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 7

8 Figure 1: Face Frame Back with Pocket Screw Holes and Stile Grooves Door Moving onto the door, you ll need to expose a 3/4 long tongue (or tenon) at the ends of each door rail. For a clear instruction on how to accomplish this using a table saw, watch this YouTube video from my channel: Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 8

9 Once the tongues are exposed on the door rails, you can cut a 1/4 wide by 1/4 deep groove down the middle of each door part. Next, raise the table saw blade to 3/4 high and make a 2-1/2 long groove on the ends of the door stiles. This will allow the tongues on the rails to plug into the stiles. Test for fit. For another example of this technique, you can watch this YouTube video from my channel: At this point, you can cut a 1/4 deep by 1/4 wide rabbit all along the edge of the door center panels. You should be able to assemble doors dry without any glue to test its fit up. Make adjustments where necessary. Plywood Boxes Machining the plywood box will require adding 23/32 grooves in a few places. First, we ll add a groove in one of the side boards for the back board. Using a router table with a 23/32 cutting bit or a 23/32" dado blade stack on your table saw, make a groove 3/8 deep down the length of the side board and locate it so it leaves a 1/4" space between the groove edge and the back edge of the sideboard. Refer to Figure 2 for reference. Next, you ll need to add grooves in one of the side boards to receive the top and bottom boards. Locate these 3/8 deep grooves so they leave a 3/4" space between the groove edge and the top and bottom of the side boards respectively. Refer to Figure 2 for reference. You ll need to repeat these cuts on the other side board, but make sure they are a mirror opposite of the first side board. Figure 2 illustrates that mirrored reference. Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 9

10 Figure 2: Box Side Boards Left and Right Side Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 10

11 The back board will need one 23/32" wide by 3/8 deep groove 3/4 up from the bottom edge and a second groove 3/4" down from the top edge. See Figure 3 for that image. The bottom and top boards won t need any modifications. Figure 3: Back Board Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 11

12 Assembly: Using wood glue and 1-1/4 long pocket screws, assemble the face frame as per Figure 1. For the box assembly, dry fit the box components together first before gluing the assembly together. The sides can be stood upright, while the back is inserted into the grooves in each side. You can then insert the bottom and top boards into the grooves in the sides. The bottom and top boards should fully seat into the grooves in the back board and will be 1/4" recessed from the front edges of the sides. Use clamps to help you keep the assembly together during dry fit. If everything fits together well without glue, you can disassemble it and glue it together. Liberally apply a bead of wood glue into each groove before you reassemble. You can shoot in a 3/4" long brad nail at an angle into the joints to keep the assembly together while you are clamping it up. Make sure to clamp the assembly in multiple spots as you proceed. At this point, you can also glue the face frame to the box assembly and clamp both units together by applying a liberal bead of glue in the face fame groove. Check to ensure the top of the face frame and the top of the box assembly are flush. It might help to position the cabinet upside down on a workbench to ensure they remain flush. Measure the cabinet from diagonal to diagonal at the top of the cabinet to verify the cabinet is square. If it s out of square, use a long clamp over the longer corners and tighten it down until it comes into square. Keep the cabinet clamped together overnight to make sure the glue cures properly. The door will go together similarly. Only apply glue to the tongues. You don t need to glue the center panel in, but you can if you want to since it s made Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 12

13 from plywood. Make sure the stiles ends are flush to the rails and clamp together overnight. The shelf front board can be attached to the plywood shelf board using glue and brad nails. For the door hinges, it s best to simply follow the manufacturer s instructions provided with the hinges you purchase as they vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. The door should be installed temporarily to ensure fit and functionality then removed for finishing. Finishing: Before painting or staining, sand every surface lightly using 120-grit sandpaper. Sand every surface again using 220-grit sandpaper and then wipe clean with a clean rag. You can use a tack cloth and a rag with denatured alcohol as well. If you want to paint your cabinet, you should apply two coats of a primer followed by two coats of your finish paint. It s best to spray both applications using an HVLP gun. You can use a shellac-based primer like BIN and a satin lacquer for the final coat. If spraying your paint is not an option, you can use a brush to apply your paint. Read more here about best practices and products for painting cabinets: If you plan to stain your cabinet, apply a pre-stain conditioner first to avoid blotches. Follow that with your stain and then either a clear coat lacquer as a topcoat or satin polyurethane. You should generally avoid anything glossier than satin or eggshell. After the finishing process is complete, you can re-assemble your cabinet permanently by re-installing the door. Our Home from Scratch LLC Page 13
