Well, we started working on the next set of kitchen cabinets for Momplex Unit A - and man, have things ever been slow going with a newborn! The Ram's pretty much been a one man show this kitchen ... poor guy, on the last kitchen we built, his building partner was 8 months preggers.

One of the things we really wanted to do this time around was put together video tutorials for the bigger steps in building kitchen cabinets. I know many of you find helpful to see something done, and not just read about it.

So here's our first video in the series (baby allowing there will be more) - going through the steps to build a base kitchen cabinet carcass.

We hope this video was helpful to those of you kitchen cabinet shopping - it really is very easy to build your own kitchen. Let us know if you'd like to see more videos from the Ram in the comments below.

kitchen cabinets

I have been building right along with you, but these will be going into my mobile home. It is so easy, and so cheap! BUT I really have to get one of those right angle clamps.

Yes, I would like to see more

Yes, I would like to see more videos. Can you tell me what the blue tool is that's used to drill the shelf pinholes? Is it a Kreg tool also?

I have soo many projects on my to-do list, can't wait to get started. I'm not starting till I save enough for my Kreg Jig though. In the mean time, I'm stalking your site and learning as much as possible, so keep them coming... please:)

plywood edge chipping

The edges of plywood will always chip a wee bit no matter what, just plan to have that side facing in or down on your project. That being said, the right sawblade for the job makes a huge difference. If you are using a fast cut framing blade it will chew up plywood horribly. As a general rule the more teeth on the blade the smoother the cuts. If you aren't sure what blade you should have for your particular saw the guys at the hardware store should be able to steer you in the right direction.
