Did you know that know that a dollhouse kitchen cabinet is actually very easy to make? I dreaded making one so much, that I ended up making all other kitchen pieces first. How silly was that?

You have the options to use faux drawers or faux doors for the fronts!

DESIGN NOTES FOR DOLLHOUSE KITCHEN CABINET

This kitchen cabinet is available in 3 widths:

  • Standard (equals to 30″ in real life) – this is the one pictured
  • Compact (equals to 24″ in real life)
  • Wide (equals to 36″ in real life)

The measurements are designed to work with 1/16″ material, except for the countertop which is 1/8″ thick. I simply double-layered 1/16″ basswood for the countertop.

The SVG files are available on my Etsy shop, and you get all 3 widths! And, both faux drawers and faux door fronts are included!

TOOLS & MATERIALS TO MAKE DOLLHOUSE KITCHEN CABINET

I use my Cricut Maker to cut all the pieces, and here is my recommended tools and materials:

Cutting List for Dollhouse Kitchen Cabinet

  • 2 pieces of Side
  • 1 piece of Back
  • 1 pieces of Back2
  • 1 piece of Toekick
  • 1 piece of Bottom Shelf
    • Optional: Cut 1 more piece as a Top to add sturdiness
  • 1 piece of Front
  • 2 pieces of Countertop
  • 1 piece of Top Drawer
  • Choose either Drawers or Doors for below the top drawer:
    • 2 pieces of Lower Drawer, OR
    • 2 pieces of Door

ASSEMBLING THE DOLLHOUSE KITCHEN CABINET

I made a video overview of the assembly, which you can watch here or on YouTube. I recommend you watch it to get a feel of the whole process! The assembly notes below have some more details, so I think it’s helpful to read them also.

Step 1: Cut and label all pieces

Cut all the necessary pieces (refer to the cutting list above). Label each piece using a pencil, so the markings can be erased or covered easily with paint. Sand all edges so they’re smooth and even.

Step 2: Put together the pieces

Glue the Back 2 piece to the lower part of Back 1 piece.

Then glue the sides to the back pieces.
