I was ready to tackle the remodel in my bathroom which included moving my toilet across the room, replacing all the plumbing, wiring, flooring, removing plaster walls, and removing the 2’ X 2’ chimney. The first step was to find cabinets that I liked. I went to all of the popular home stores and found one set that I liked but couldn’t see paying $2500 for particle board. So I decided to give building cabinets a shot. I never did it before and did a lot of studying before I tried. I purchased a set of door bits from MLCS and was totally pleased with them. I ended up with $600 in materials and 3 months later had rock solid walnut cabinets.

Great looking cabinets. Now you have the experience and confidence to do more projects like this. And like Ken90712 said, money saved on the cabinets can be spent adding to or upgrading your tools. It’s a win-win situation. Nice job, thanks for sharing.

Thanks everybody!! I will post more pictures of these and other projects soon. Like Ken said, savings = more tools. That is exactly what I do with the money that I save. My shope keeps growing. Time to build a bigger shop!!
