A quick and cheap way to change the look of a kitchen is to just change the cabinet doors. I recently took on a job to make new cabinet doors for a relatives kitchen. It ended up being 21 cabinet doors and 4 new drawers. Cheap pine was used to keep the cost down as this was a budget project. To make the doors I used tongue and groove joinery that was completely cut at the table saw. A router table has some benefits for door joinery but isn’t always necessary. Recording me making a batch of cabinet doors would be pretty boring so I made the video into a “how to” on making cabinet doors on the table saw. For those who are interested you can watch the how to video and download free PDF plans here:

Have a good week folks!

I’ve only made 4 cabinets, with a total of 8 doors. That process was a complete pain, and I cannot imagine 3 times that! They came out really nice!!

Hope you kept your sanity!

Hey Jay! Loved your video. I’m glad I started following you on youtube! I appreciate the videos, and look forward to watching them each week! Nice job on the doors. My wife and I just bought a house, and we are going to put new faces on the cabinets. This is a great tutorial to get me started! Thanks
