to the fog. A great group to help support you with the festool addiction and excellent knowledge of woodworking!
What you are suggesting is very common and an easy way to go. I did exactly what you are suggesting prior to my festool addiction and thus when saying there was an easier way, I discovered the track saw
After doing this project I offer the following lessons learned for consideration.
1. Plan out ALL cabinets and develop a cut list. I did not do that and it cost me lots of time in setup and parts not being all the same. Plan the work and work the plan.
2. As mentioned above, purchase the track saw, rails and guides. This will allow you to break down sheet goods quickly and safely by yourself if required.
3. Since you are using pre finished plywood, if using frameless cabinets, ensure you use pre finished edge banding. It will match perfect and much easier.
4. There are many discussions on the forum about how to join the pieces to make the cabinet. I would use a domino pocket hole combo, however if you do not have a domino use biscuit joints at least for alignment purposes. This combo will help with assembly of the cabinets.
5. The factory finish is great. Once you have assembled the cabinet, you are done and ready to install. No need for finishing except the doors which will be added after the cabinets are installed. Keep in mind though, the finish is very good but you still have to treat the wood kindly or you will mark up the finish. It is hard to match the factory finish.
6. If you are demoing an existing kitchen, ensure you have your cabinets built prior. I know this sounds like a given but I only had half built. This meant I had to put in temp measures for sinks, ovens etc. I did not score too many brownie points withe boss.
Overall this is a great project to tackle. Lots of knowledge on this forum to help out and if you have more questions or get stuck during the process, just post your question. Pics also help considerably. Good luck!
