HGTV has a free plan that builds this movable kitchen island where you build your own custom cabinets and drawers.
Building a kitchen island can be pretty straightforward if you use stock cabinets for the cabinets and doors. Use simple straight cuts on plywood and stock boards to wrap the cabinets. Before you begin building the island, order your countertop made 21-1/4 inches wide x 56 inches long, so that it's ready to install when the base piece is done.
Build the Cabinets, Buy the Doors. Building kitchen cabinet doors is doable but can be tricky. It sometimes requires powerful and expensive wood-shaping equipment. And if you have a bunch to build, you'll need a lot of clamps and even more space. Unless you have unlimited free time, consider building your cabinets but buying your doors.
For your own cabinets, you have lots of options: For a really fine cabinet, you can order plywood veneered with a hardwood such as cherry or walnut and make the face frame from matching solid wood. Conversely, for a utility cabinet, you could save money by using BC grade plywood.
