In this printable plan, we provide dimensions for the 5 most popular cabinet sizes:

  • 12" W x 24" D x 34.5" H
  • 18" W x 24" D x 34.5" H
  • 24"  W x 24" D x 34.5" H
  • 30" W x 24" D x 34.5" H
  • 36" W x 24" D x 34.5" H

In this project plan we also include formulas for making custom cabinet sizes.

Please note: this plan is for the base cabinet only. No drawer or door plans are included in this project plan. Why? Because you can choose to make your doors or drawers a variety of sizes or styles, or you can forgo doors and drawers all together. There are so many possibilities that it would be impossible to cover them all here. We do offer a Doors + Drawers Guide that includes instructions on how to build and install doors and drawers as well as a custom calculator so you can get the dimensions needed for your exact cabinet size. 

This plan is also included in our Cabinet Guide, which includes more details on building cabinets, alternate building options, and instructions on installing cabinets.

Do you offer plans with metric units? All of our plans are in inches. Because every country offers different wood sizes, we cannot make a standard plan using metric units. What we do instead is provide the SketchUp file as a free bonus and a video on how to use the tape measure tool in the free version of SketchUp to convert each piece to mm or cm without any math. You can then make any necessary adjustments to the plans based on what wood sizes are available for you.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a digital product. Nothing physical will be shipped to you. Ensure your email address is correctly entered on the checkout page. PDF download and SketchUp file will be delivered via the provided email address. 

All measurements are standard (aka feet and inches), NOT metric. 

This is a personal single-use license, not for resale or professional use.
