How to Level and Attach Kitchen Cabinets
By: Danny Lipford
When installing the cabinets during this kitchen remodel, the base cabinets were put in first to allow measurements for the granite countertops. The base cabinets were set on blocks to compensate for the hardwood floor that was installed later.
Wood shims were used to level the cabinets and align the faces. Once the cabinets were in place, the faces of the base cabinets were screwed together to keep them aligned, and the hanging cabinets were installed over them.
