How to Make Your Kitchen Cabinets Look Built-in Using Scrap Wood

60 Minutes

Since so many people have asked how I did this, I thought I would post about it. The blog post has the full tutorial but this should be good as well.
no feet yet, measure each cabinet and cut a 1x4 to length
make your template and mark on your board. Cut with a jigsaw. Prime and paint each set of feet.
screw to bottom frame of cabinet. Caulk and touch up with paint, once caulk is dry.

      I think I understand what you are asking. I would have the same issue. After looking at the pictures again, I don't think there are any corners. Both the right side and the left side are against a wall.

    How do you attach the 1 x 4 "leg" board to the bottom of the cabinets? I don't see any nail holes on the front of them.
