Well . . . Im starting one of my largest projects to date . . . a set of kitchen cabinets for our new home. These will be made from solid poplar with no glues or adhesives. I will be using pocket hole joinery throughout the entire project.
First step is to order the lumber. We will be getting it from a local lumber warehouse who will have to get it from Quebec or Ontario. Prior to ordering I need to know how much lumber I will need for the project.
DW has a detailed plan of the cabinets with measurements so is it as simple as adding up the square footage of cabinets (sides, fronts, drawers, doors, etc) and adding in a wastage factor????
What would be a reasonable wastage factor ??
Any advice would be appreciated.
