From the Back Cover

Enhance every room in your home with the 26 practical and beautiful storage projects you'll find in Cabinets & Built-ins. You'll find space-saving ideas such as shelves to mount to the inside of your kitchen cabinet doors. You'll find ambitious projects such as the entertainment center. Yet no matter how large the project, none are difficult. All of the projects have been designed with simple, sturdy joinery that can be easily accomplished in a home workshop.

Cabinets and Built-ins opens with a thoroughly illustrated techniques chapter that explains every method you'll need to construct all the projects. Renowned wood-finishing expert Bob Flexner teaches you how to keep your project looking great for generations to come.

Cabinets and Built-ins includes:
Projects for the KITCHEN...
Learn to make and install your own kitchen cabinets or just improve the kitchen you have with the door-mounted shelves, roll-out shelves, cutting board with knife storage, and spice rack.

Projects for the BATH...
Remodel the bathroom by making your own custom vanity and medicine cabinet. Make your own super-convenient hamper.

Projects for the BEDROOM...
Construct an heirloom-quality chest of drawers or a stylish platform bed with matching wall unit, or put the space under the bed to work by building a clever rolling drawer. Build a bunk bed or toy box for the kids.

Projects for the LIVING ROOM...
Create an elegantly appointed living space with a customized entertainment center that can be built with or without flanking bookcases. Display your treasures on a decorative shelf, or curl up and enjoy the sun on your built-in window seat.

Projects for the STUDY...
Mix and match components to create the computer center that perfectly matches your needs. Short on space? Build the folding desk.

Projects for the UTILITY ROOM...
Organize your utility room with quick-to-build utility shelves, the compact sewing center, and an ironing board that folds into the wall.

This book has little in it. The first large section covers very basic information, including nail sizes. If you need beginer information, that's fine, but there are better books for that than this one.
Most of the projects in this book are simple, and illustrated with cheesy computer drawn images. If you want to build cabinets or built-ins there are much better books than this.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book about a year ago and after dusting it off I decided to try building the toy chest. After following the directions EXACTLY, I found two glaring errors when dry fitting. 1. Side trim are 3/4 in short 2. Bottom is not even close to the correct size. I have ruined 4 board feet of oak and 1/4 sheet of oak plywood for assuming the plans measurements were correct. I completely agree with the other reviewer. Half of the book talks about very basic areas not even suitable for beginners. There are a lot better books to learn basic woodworking. The pictures are cheesy computer animation with very little detail. Come to think of it, there is nothing good to say.

I may be the only one who liked the illustrations, and the instructions are simple and straightforward (albeit incomplete). But I agree with krhino41 about the cut-charts: the authors apparently made no significant effort to proof their work. Although the vanities I made from this book worked out tolerably well, in the base cab plans I have found five critical design errors so far. As a result I now have a nearly finished base cab carcase in the shop that will be tinder for a bonfire come colder weather, and I'll be taking pages from this book to light it.

This book was not what I expected. However it gives good details on how to do the construction of several items on your own. If you are just looking for ideas as I was and are not interested in doing yourself, this is not the book for you.
