Easy to follow and flexible!

I used these to make some custom base cabinets for a kitchen island. The pre-sized measurements really helped me understand the pattern and customize the dimensions for what I needed. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. I also appreciated that there were instructions for how to use scrap plywood instead of 1x boards for the face frame, which I did. The cutting layouts were helpful too, though I ended up using to create my own layouts because I needed unusual sizes, but wanted to make the best use of my wood. Thank you for sharing, well worth it for the confidence! Even though I have some woodworking experience, I was pretty nervous about getting everything square, strong, and stable, and this helped me so much.
