What type of construction do you use?

DIY Cabinets preferred construction is what's know as mortise and tenon or blind dado. This method is extremely strong and has been used throughout the centuries. The cabinets can be assembled with glue and clamps or with glue and screws. For cabinets that must find there way up or down narrow  or curved stairs and hallways Rafix type fasteners work well. Rafix are a type of semi exposed cam lock system. See the assembly section for more details.

What drawer slide hardware should I use?

This will depend a lot on budget and what the drawers are going to be used for. There are some extremely economical drawer slide that will work on light duty drawers, but they won't last long if you plan on putting any weight in the drawers. And the are slides that are designed for heavy loads such as filing drawers. DIY Cabinets will help you to make sure that what you choose will work for your application.

In your drawing and pictures it looks like all the cabinets are on some type of feet or legs, I thought all cabinets had their own base.

Great question! The legs used for kitchen cabinets, vanities, closets, garage cabinets etc. are adjustable! That means no shimming at the floor and they make quick work of leveling a row of cabinets. There is a detachable trim that clips onto the legs so that they have that finished look. Also if you ever have a wet floor for any reason you don't have to worry about your cabinets being ruined.

For measurements can I use imperial (inches) or do I have to use metric (mm)?

DIY Cabinets uses both imperial and metric, so what ever your comfortable with is just fine. For imperial all dimensions should be in only inches and for metric dimensions should only be in millimeters. Whatever you use be consistent that's what is most important.
