How to Build Your Own DIY Kitchen Cabinets–Using Only Plywood!

Building your own kitchen cabinets seems a little intimidating. All the planing and the milling and the sanding and the fancy joinery. No one has the tools and the time for that.

But what if you could build them all with 100% plywood and what if the joinery was quick, clean, and didn’t require a bunch of fancy tools?

I’ve got the perfect plans for you πŸ™‚

I recently built all of our kitchen cabinets from 100% PureBond Plywood and pocket hole joinery. And, you guys, I’ve never had more compliments on anything in my life. They look amazing.

But the best part was, they were quick, easy, and much cheaper than if I had bought a bunch of hardwood to mill up myself…or if I had had someone else build my own custom cabinets.

For simplicity and to be able to build them with only plywood, I went with a clean, modern frameless design with full overlay doors. To save a few bucks, I built my cabinet boxes from 3/4″ PureBond Birch Plywood. But did you know that PureBond also has specialty hardwood plywoods, too?

To give some visual interest and add some warmth, I went with a full overlay cabinet door using 3/4″ PureBond Hickory Plywood. That’s right…Hickory Plywood. Who knew there was such a thing? And it’s GORGEOUS.

These 100% plywood cabinets are so easy to make and can save you a TON of money vs buying your next kitchen cabinets. Check out this how to video and get all the details, tips and tricks on the exact plans and build over on the blog at:
