The project on this page was designed for anyone with an interest in woodworking, yet you would like to build something different. The Woodworks series is meant to be the first step in the process of becoming a professional woodworker.
The first project of Woodworks series is this simple frame cabinet with doors and drawer boxes. This project is a great opportunity to learn some basic woodworking techniques. You’ll have no trouble at all with woodworking projects, but your hands will be shaking by the end.
All you need is a jig saw with a 3/8″ bit.
In our project, we used 2×4’s. We also used screws to fit the panels to the frame. I made a very simple cabinet shape, and simply used 3/8″ screws to attach the panels together. We used one piece for drawer boxes, and one piece for doors. The drawer boxes are made with 2 x 10 boards, and the doors are made with two pieces of 1×8 wood glued together. I did this to fit together to make a perfect looking cabinet with doors.
We also used plywood for the cabinets. The plywood is not as expensive as the wood you will find in your local hardware store, and you can make a variety of cabinets using this material. I recommend you to invest in some foamboard or something with similar characteristics.
In a few days, you will make this beautiful woodworking cabinet using these 5 easy steps.
Step 1 – Choose the type
I chose a single piece 1×8 (2 x 8) door panel panel. The cabinet will cost about $75.00. We chose “J-Panel” because that panel is very attractive, and looks cool.
