So I have a cut out on each side of my fireplace the wife is wanting to do built-ins with floating shelves above. We got a couple quotes and good lord I didn’t think it would be that much. Two base cabinets, unfinished and installed for $2100. Probably isn’t too crazy, just way more than I want to spend on this project. Especially when they are going to be mostly cosmetic. Being somewhat handy, I have the urge to do it myself and save a lot of money. I have and have access to good tools. I have a little wood working experience but it’s been since high school since I have put something together that needed to look good. I have never done cabinets but what I saw online looked straight forward. Here’s my problem, I don’t want to get knee deep and uncover a bunch of issues that someone with experience would know... Also do not want it to look jank... Is it as straight forward as it seems it would be or is it more of an art? I figured with patience and attention to detail I’d be okay. Just don’t know if this is a project that would be better left for a pro? Just looking for experiences, good or bad. Recommendations or maybe someone to bounce a question or two off.
