Unless you have a large flat surface, you will be better off doing it by hand. A pad will not get into the small details or feature lines on a cabinet. Polishing over a feature line can wear them down and it will look bad.
If the cabinet is in a non weathered condition, it should not take much to bring up a gloss.
Don't forget the toothpicks, toothbrusies and sharpened sticks to get the polish out of the tiny corners and details.
