Base Cabinet Basics [*Ad] [member edit]

Direct link -

A couple of years ago I put out a set of videos called Cabinetry Basics about wall cabinet construction and even today I still get a lot ‘yes but what about base cabinets’ questions, so in this one I’ll be condensing many of these questions down into an easy to follow tutorial to help you understand why I make them the way I do. Enjoy!

[*Ad] This video is sponsored by Medite. You know Medite, they make top quality MDF, and every painted set of shelves, bookcases, wardrobes , cabinets or doors you may have seen me make on this channel was made with Medite MR or Moisture Resistant MDF, and in this video I’m using Medite’s ultimate MRMDF, Medite Optima.

Visit meditesmartply for more information, and I’d like to thank Medite for the opportunity to use Optima on this project.
