Install the Base Cabinets
Using the highest point of the floor, measure up 4 5/16 inches and draw a level line on the wall. From this line, measure up 34 1/2 inches and draw another level line.
Cut wall strips the length of the base cabinets and attach them to wall studs. If the end of a strip falls between studs, attach it with a mooring screw or expansion bolt.
Using the wall strip as support, install a corner cabinet or one that fits against back and side walls less the filler distance.
Level each cabinet by adjusting the legs.
Secure the first cabinet in place and install the rest of the base cabinets as you did the wall cabinets.
Install filler pieces with the cut edge against the wall. Screw the filler pieces in place from inside the cabinets. If the wall is not level and flat, cut the filler piece to conform to the wall’s shape. Caulk around the filler pieces.
Using a miter box, cut and install cornices and molding.
To smooth caulk, daub your finger into 3-in-1 oil, then run your finger along the seam.
