  • 36" W x 12" D x 12" H

If you want to create custom cabinet sizes other than the ones listed here, we include instructions on how to calculate the dimensions of each piece as well as a link to a cut list optimizer to help you visualize your optimized cut list. 

Please note: this plan is for the upper cabinet only. No 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.

Can I adjust the dimensions of this project to better fit my space? Yes! That’s the beauty of DIY: being able to customize plans to your exact dimensions and design. We’ve included the SketchUp file as a free bonus to these printable plans, meaning you can adjust the dimensions in SketchUp and actually visualize how they will look before you start building. SketchUp is also a great way to double-check that you’ve made all your adjustments correctly ;) 

In this project plan we include formulas to follow for making your own custom cabinet sizes.

If you want more guidance on how to adjust the dimensions with or without SketchUp, check out our “How To Adjust Dimensions of Existing Plans” Masterclass

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.
