Jeff BranchWOODWORKINGPublisher: Jeff BranchEditor: Jeff BranchArt Direction: Jeff BranchContributing Editor: Jeff BranchIllustration: Jeff BranchMarketing: Jeff BranchBasically, I created this document all by myself.******On the cover: The design for this cupboardstarted as a traditional, sort of primitive form,but changed when I added the detail at thebottom of the face frame center stile. Thatshape, which I like a lot, struck me as beingmore modern. Then the subtle curve of the feetwas meant to be minimalistic and the designmorphed further from there.contentsMain Dimensions3Cut List4Build the Case7Make the Face Frame10Build the Drawers14Door Construction19Final Assembly24Plywood Cutting Diagram302 - You Can Build A Modern Kitchen CupboardThe doors and drawer fronts are illustrated withbirdseye maple. This wood strikes me as beingperfectly at home in a modern design. The graypaint retains a primitive quality, but also isminimalistic since it hides the wood grainunderneath. The cherry drawer pulls aredefinitely modern in design as is the moldingbelow the cupboard top which is made from flatstock. One last modern detail: the top extendsbeyond the sides more than it does the front(easily seen on the cover) which is not atraditional detail, and the top ends are curved.

If you don’t want your drawers to tip down as they are pulledout, use them. If a little downward movement is OK, then omit them.Sand all parts as you progress through the plan. Also consider adding finish toparts like the interior of the case sides as well as cross members, sub top, shelvesand door panels prior to assembly.A Note About Workshop SafetyBe sure to understand and practice safe workshop proceedures. Know and implement thesafety instructions provided by your tool manufacturer. Wear eye and ear protection whenappropriate and protect yourself from the fine dust generated by woodworking tools.Never become complacent with your tools. They are potentially dangerous; use them withrespect.6 - You Can Build A Modern Kitchen Cupboard

build the caseBegin construction by making the casesides, parts A. Cut the sides to final sizeand begin fabricating the shelf and crossmember dados as well as the sub-top andback rabbets. Their locations are shown inillustration 7A.See 7BIllustration 7B shows dimensions for thesub top and back rabbets.

Parts B and E need a tenon oneach end as shown in 8B. No tenon for part C.Tenon onthe ends ofB and E are1/2 x 3/8”Using a router equipped with a 1/2” straight cutting bit, form the tenons. Take off a little material withmultiple passes with the router until you have a snug fit with the dados in the case sides, parts A (see 7A).If making the shelves out of plywood, add shelf banding, part F to each shelf. Attach with glue and brads.Trim part F to be flush with the shelf.Finally, pre-drill for pocket screws in parts B and C. For part C, the pocket screw hole is on the top surface,and on all of parts B, the pocket screw holes are on the bottom surface (indicated in blue).8 - You Can Build A Modern Kitchen Cupboard8B 2017 Jeff Branch

Clamp andallow the glue to dry. Remove the right side.Next, add glue to the right ends of parts B and E.Position the right side in place. Clamp and allow theglue to dry.Lastly, add glue to both ends of the sub top, part C.Position it in place. Drive brands through each caseside into part C. Clamp and let dry.

make the face frameThe top edge of the drawer rails, parts J, and thebottom rail, part I, are meant to fit flush with the topsurface of the cross members parts B.Note: Thesecomponentsshould fit flush attheir top with thecorrespondingcase crossmembers.One note: On page 11 and in the cutlist, the faceframe stiles, parts G, are shown final size. To ensureyour face frame fits the cupboard case, it is best tomake the face frame slightly wider than need be(about 1/8” each side) and then trim it to fit flushwith the case sides, parts A. So, when making partsG, take the width shown and add 1/8”. Then trimthis away after you attach the face frame to thecase. This can be easily accomplished by using arouter equipped with a flush trim bit.10A10 - You Can Build A Modern Kitchen Cupboard 2017 Jeff BranchThe face frame features joinery which can be alittle challenging: mortise and tenons. Also, lap jointsare used with the center stile, but lap joints arepretty easy to make. Of course, the whole faceframe can be assembled using pocket screws, butgaining more experience with mortise and tenonjoinery is always a good thing.

Note: Cut the footarch (highlighted inyellow) after you cutthe mortises. Notethe foot dimensionsand follow the shapeshown in 7C.This mortise (highlighted in blue)is 3/8 x 1-1/4 and 1” deep.Tenons on part K are 3/8x 1-1/4” and 1” long.3/4”G3/4”Face Frame Stile60-1/4 x3-3/4 x 3/4”Make two.1-1/4”These mortisesare 3/8 x 3/4”and 1” deep.KFace FrameTop Rail32-1/2 x1-3/4” x 3/4”Lap joint on parts Jis 2 x 1” and 3/8”deep.JThis mortise is 3/8 x1-1/4 and 1” deep.Face FrameDrawer Rail32-1/2 x1 x 3/4”I11ALap joint on partK is 2 x 1-3/4”and 3/8” deep.Face FrameBottom Rail32-1/2 x1-3/4” x 3/4”Lap joint on part Iis 2 x 1-3/4” and3/8” deep.11 - You Can Build A Modern Kitchen CupboardTenons on part Jare 3/8 x 3/4”and 1” long.Tenons on part I are 3/8 x1-1/4” and 1” long.

build the drawersThe drawers are next. These drawers are simple boxesand in this example, with dowel pin joinery, construction issolid and easy. You could use dovetail joinery in place ofthe dowel pins or other method of your choosing, butthese dowel pined box corners are quick, decorative andwork amazingly well.All four drawers are identical making a production styleconstruction set-up possible. The drawer boxes have anapplied “drawer face” shown in birdseye maple withmodern, shop made drawer pulls in an alternative woodspecies such as the cherry shown. 2017 Jeff BranchFirst we will need to add the drawer guides and drawerkicker which will help establish the width, height anddepth of the drawers. Let’s get started.Doors and drawers are inset 1/8”from the face frame.14A14B14 - You Can Build A Modern Kitchen Cupboard

These dimensions are based mostly onthe face frame drawer opening and should be considered a starting point for determiningfinal drawer size. In reality, you want your drawer sides, back, front and drawer face to beslightly smaller than their corresponding drawer opening. But not much smaller: for thedrawer box (drawer box the drawer without the drawer face), 1/8” smaller in final heightand about 1/16” or less in width. Compare the cutlist component size with your face frameopening and cupboard depth. Make needed adjustments in component size and cutcomponents as shown above. Remember the drawer face is inset from the face frame by1/8” (see 14B).the drawer sides. Position a drawer front with a drawer side and securely clamp in place.Drill 1/4” holes through the drawer side and into the drawer front. Drill to a depth of oneinch (you will drill to 1/2” into the drawer front). Repeat for the remaining corners.Bring together the components to form one drawer box corner.

Note that the drawer back sits on top of the drawer bottom. Securethe drawer bottom to the drawer back with a small screw.17 - You Can Build A Modern Kitchen Cupboard

Last up for drawer construction: add thedrawer pull to the drawer face, and attach thedrawer face to the drawer box.Access holesfor drawer pullscrews.Temporarily place a spacer (example: a businesscard) on the face frame rail as shown,highlighted in yellow. Trim the drawer face, partT, to fit the drawer opening with an even gap onall drawer face edges.Use a spacer tohelp position thedrawer face.QAfter fitting the drawer face, add double sidedtape to the back of the drawer face and pressinto place against the drawer box.

door constructionYBefore we get to work on the doors, afew notes:1)Just as with the drawers, the doorsare inset from the face frame by1/8”. When open, the doors will notlay flat against the face frame.2)To help give the doors more swing,there is a spacer strip which thedoors/hinges mount to. I call this parta door offset in the cut list.3)The door panel is flat on the front, buthas a raised back seen in theillustration on both pages 2 and 22. Ifyou prefer a flat back, you will need tomill stock to 1/4” thick.4)I call for mortise and tenon joinery forthe door frame, but you could alsouse dowel joinery, domino, etc.Door Rail11-14 x 2-1/2 x 3/4”Make two per door.Mortise andtenon joinery.AAPull3 x 7/8x 3/8”Door panel fitsinto a groove.Turn the page and let’s make some doors.ZDoor Panel34-3/4 x 10x 3/4”WDoor Stile 139 x 2-1/8x 3/4”XDoor Stile 239 x 2-1/2x 3/4”19A19 - You Can Build A Modern Kitchen CupboardDoor pulls arethe same size asthe drawer pulls.

Door construction begins with the addition of the door offsets, parts AB. Thesecomponents are what the doors are actually mounted to. Because the doors arerecessed 1/8” from the outer surface of the face frame, these slender spacer stripsenable the doors to swing wider before they make contact with the face frame. Thedoor offsets should be made from the same wood species as the doors.AB 2017 Jeff BranchDoor Offset39 x 3/4X 3/8”Make two.Cut parts AB to final size. Next locate the position for the hinges.
