Chalk line for installing base cabinets

Depends on the cabinets, if there is a void at the back of the cabinet a great way of installing uppers is to screw a cleat (the same thickness of the cabinet's void) to the studs at the desired height. Then you can screw the cabinets at any place where the cleat lands. This makes it nice to layout the studs behind where the cabinets are and you can mark the walls where it won't show up as the cabinet will hide it.
