Featured Project
Turn a Wooden Cabinet Into a Glass-Front Cabinet with the MM40

Regrouting Bathroom And Shower Tiles

Watch as Chip Wade turns a wooden cabinet into a glass-front cabinet using the new Dremel Multi-Max MM40

Looking for a way to add a little pop to a room? You’re not alone – Americans who live in a home that is fewer than 25 years old are significantly more likely to want to change the décor (44 percent), according to a recent survey of homeowners conducted by the Dremel brand. Revamping kitchen cabinets to feature a glass front is a great way to change décor without remodeling a large space.

For this project, you’ll need a Dremel Multi-Max MM40 (or other Dremel oscillating tool) and Dremel Trio™. In addition, you’ll need a MM463 Hard Wood Flush Cut Blade, TR654 Straight Router Bit, MM11A Hook and Loop Pad, MM70W Wood Sand Paper, glass panels, clear silicone adhesive and mirror mounting hardware.

View a step-by-step video demo featuring Chip Wade, or follow the project steps below.
  1. Detach raised panel cabinet door from cabinet.
  2. Attach MM463 Cutting Blade to Dremel Multi-Max oscillating tool.
  3. Plunge blade into cabinet door along outer edge of the raised panel you wish to remove. (Tip: Use the side of the panel or any molding as a straight edge to maintain a straight, even cut.)
  4. Working slowly, continue to carefully plunge the blade along all four sides of the interior panel until it is free from the door.
  5. Remove the wooden panel from the door.
  6. Working from the interior side of the door, use the Dremel Trio with TR800 Straight Edge Guide and a TR654 Straight Router Bit to rout a recessed edge to place a glass panel into. Making multiple passes with an increased cutting depth to achieve the required depth is recommended.
  7. Attach MM11 Hook and Loop Pad and 240-Grit MM70W Wood Sand Paper to tool.
  8. Sand along cut line to smooth any rough spots.
  9. Attach glass panel to back of cabinet door using silicone adhesive or mirror mounting hardware. Mirror hardware requires additional routing to secure hardware.
  10. Once dry, reattach cabinet door to cabinet.
