I’m building my first cabinets – starting in the laundry room to refine my technique. I’m custom building an 80” base cabinet that is essentially four cabinets in one. I have carefully measured and cut all the pieces making sure that all the pieces of the same length are cut in a single operation. The problem I’m seeing is that there is some accumulated error in the cuts regardless of the care taken in measuring and cutting.

I’m looking for some tips or tricks on how to deal with this issue in a systematic way. Thanks.

Cut everything a little long and trim to fit the actual mating pieces. Seems tedious and simple but, for me, it’s the fastest way to the best results in the long run.
