Get the straight talk about cabinet construction, including:

- How to assemble a box carcase that is the basis for anything from a small dresser to a home entertainment center.

- The secret to making drawers that glide smoothly into a piece of furniture while being sturdy enough to bear the weight of their contents.

- How to use haunched mortise-and-tenon and decorative cope-and-stick joints in frame-and-panel cabinets.

- Choosing a door type that gives visual appeal, from the rustic board-and-batten to the finely crafted frame-and-panel model.

- Designing, crafting, and attaching the most popular leg types: cabriole, tapered, octagonal, and square legs.
