I’ve had a number of viewers ask me how to build cabinets, and raised panel doors. This is the first video in that series that I will make where I will give detailed instructions on just how that is done.
Using these methods, you can save as much as $10,000 - $15,000 on replacing your kitchen cabinets. The kitchen is the single best upgrade you can do to a home. And cabinets are really a very straight-forward woodworking project. Even if you purchased every single tool needed for a full shop to build cabinets, you would still save substantially over purchasing cabinets from a company. I have helped many people get into woodworking and set up a shop using this route.
This project will require a router table. But it doesn’t have to cost much. Many of my viewers have built their own. You can also get them pre-made for you in a kit, and they have very high precision.
In this video, I am building a set of three raised panel doors that I am making in solid walnut. They are for an aquarium stand for my oldest daughter. I will show step by step every single part of the procedure from the first cut of the lumber to the last part; installation of the door itself. These are the identical doors that are used in high end kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. They also work wonderfully for many other pieces of fine furniture, and even items like jewelry box lids.
This video will include the milling of the stock and the making of the raised panel center pieces, and joining up boards to get to the necessary width. It also includes the making of the rails and stiles, and how to set up the required cuts for those on the router table. Finally, it covers assembly, and glue up as well as how to set up and install hinges, and mount the doors.
Below, I have detailed the supplies and tools that I used to build these doors. These are affiliate links through Amazon. If you happen to need any of these items and buy them through these links, then I get a small fee from Amazon. It will cost you nothing more, but it helps me to support our channel.

My second table setup is much more affordable, but still works great. (keep in mind, you don’t need 2 router tables. Although it is very convenient not to have to switch bits out back and forth, especially for a production run, it certainly isn’t necessary, and one setup will do the exact same quality job…
