Some experienced cabinetmakers insist a complex, custom
spreadsheet that covers all aspects of a job is the best
way to produce accurate numbers:

Besides supporting a stage for drunken, dancing guests,
the pros in this debate can't decide why a 1/2" sheet of
steel would be necessary to underlay an overhanging
granite countertop. Lighter weight options are considered

"Another Cabinet Pricing Survey" is just that. Get a
sampling of prices from across the country for a set of
