Topic tags/keywords: question cabinet

I am slowly renovating a bathroom in my house and will eventually need a vanity and some storage space. The vanity is going to be pretty wide (10’) with two sinks and probably a tall pantry like portion linen. I am learning sketchup to do the design and figure out how much of what I need. I have done a bit of woodworking, and have probably 90% of the tools I need, but i have never built a cabinet, door or drawer before.

Can anyone recommend a book or resource that goes through the whole cabinet building experience? I am probably going to redo my kitchen in another year or two as well, so the skills i learn on a single vanity will be expanded upon.

cabinets are easy to build. The main thing is being able to size plywood. For me, I use pocket screws on the bottom of the cabinets and biscuits to hold the face frame on. If you need any help drop me a line and I will try to help as much as I can.

Thanks, I have never done the doors and drawers before, so that was a big part of what i was looking for in some kind of one stop shop book or reference manual that goes through all the different techniques and types. I will just have to get started with some kind of junk pine and experiment.
