Do not kid yourself; the 32mm system of cabinet building is very complex. It was designed as a way to standardize cabinet construction and to use mass-production machinery.

Translating this to the smaller shop and making use of standard tools is not easy. It is an unforgiving system where all holes and measurements have to be PERFECT or it fails.

It also turns out that there are deviations in the standards and the way builders interpret them.

While this book certainly is valuable and gives a nice overview, it is short on the details small shops or home-owners really need. For example, the attachement of drawer sliders and the use of different drawer mechanisms is glossed over.

Get the book, but be prepared to spend a lot of time researching other sources. I ended up with some really nice projects, but it weren't easy, as they say.

Mr. Prolux is certainly an authority in 32mm cabinet design. If you look for information you should be able to find it somewhere in this book.

The main problem is weak structure of the book with boring repetitions of what was said just a couple of pages or paragraphs ago. Good writing should keep you wanting to turn next page all the time, regardless of what the book is about - this one doesn't!

Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with information in this book, it's only the amateurish structuring and general style of writing which gets in the way. So content - 4 stars, style, structuring - 2 stars.

The book provides a reasonable overview of the history of this sort of construction and provides basic techniques and information about tools and materials needed. Little attention is spent on construction from materials other than melamine, with the result that the products displayed look "bottom-of-the-line"--little to encourage you to build in this design. This was a great disappointment. I was hoping for a discussion of how to build handsome, European-style cabinets. Given the limited information of use, it was mostly a waste of money.
