Cabinet removal

Since I don't know how to upload a pic, i will describe the object of concern. I'm removing (3) upper cabinets & (2) lower cabinets in my 1990 Excella. All for sale in central Florida (Oak cabinets) Most are attached with screws, but I'm finding round objects about the size of a dime with small circular holes in the center. Can anyone tell me how to remove these safely?

Those are rivets; you need to drill the center circle. Most interior rivets drill out with a 1/8" bit, but you say those are the size of a dime. Hold your drill bits up to the hole and use one that is just a little larger than the hole to drill them. They will pop off.

Careful that you don't drill too deep. Could be wires up there and about one and a half inches and you are outside. I've seen it happen.
