Like the others have said check out your local salvage and even thrift stores. In the town I live in, we have a company called southeastern salvage that often has great deals on things like this and then there is also the Habitt store as well. Also, if you know anyone in the remodeling business, ask them to keep you in mind when they do a kitchen or bathroom project. Often they will be puttig in new cabinets. Unfortunately, if there isn’t plan for the old ones, they often just destroy the old cabinets because it is easier to dispose of them that way. I got the cabinets in my shop from a friend who let me have them if I would remove them. All I had to do was to go and take them out and haul them away. It saved his company the demo labor and I got free cabinets. It took some work and modifications to make them work, but the price was right and modifying was easier and much less time cosuming than building.
