Hanging oak kitchen cabinets requires two people. First, measure and mark the bottom point where the cabinets will hang, then use a level to mark a straight line for the cabinets to rest above. Use a stud finder to locate wall studs and mark their locations on the wall directly under the line that you drew. Have your helper hold the cabinets in place while you drill pilot holes through the cabinet brace boards and into the studs. Space two pilot holes placed equal distances apart and equal distances from the top and bottom for each brace. Attach the cabinet securely with wood screws in the pilot holes.
