If you’re considering remodeling your kitchen, you’re not alone. It’s a great way to make your home more enjoyable, and a new kitchen increases the value and makes your home more marketable. A kitchen makeover is one of the most popular do-it-yourself projects. On the plus side you can build and install your own cabinets for a fraction of the price you would pay to buy them. If you’re an amateur woodworker you can justify equipping your shop, build nicer cabinets than you can buy and still be ahead of the game.
If things go well, that is. If things go wrong you can end up living in a construction zone, unable to cook for an extended period of time. The woodworking isn’t that difficult, but there are a bunch of parts to engineer, organize and keep track of during the process. To keep your dream kitchen from becoming a nightmare you need a good plan before you get started and you need to know how to keep things organized as the work progresses.
When I wrote “The Complete Kitchen Cabinetmaker” back in 2006 I wanted a book that reflected the way things were done in the professional shops where I spent most of my working life. It doesn’t just show you how one guy builds cabinets, it presents the options and helps you make good decisions based on your taste, experience and budget. It’s the only book of its type that presents construction details for both European frameless cabinets and traditional American face frame cabinets, as well as methods for combining the two forms for efficient production. It also gives you the tools to keep the job organized from napkin sketch to cooking your first meal. The link below leads to more information about this book.

“The Complete Kitchen Cabinetmaker” is a printed book, 224 pages long with photos and drawings
Before you start tearing out existing cabinets and building new ones you need to decide what goes where and what materials and finishes to use for the cabinets, counters, floor and walls. You need to make sure everything will fit, function and look they way you (and your partner or client) envision the remodeled room. That’s what “SketchUp for Kitchen Design” is all about. With a three-dimensional model you can make sure you have room for appliances, compare different finishes, and explore different cabinet and room layouts. This books takes you from square one in the SketchUp program and shows you how to model the room, find free models of cabinets, appliances and fixtures online, make your own simple cabinet models and apply real world finishes to the surfaces in your model.
