We have been building the upper cabinets. Two more to go. The face frames are knotty alder stained with General Finishes Colonial Maple. After a couple of coats of clear finish they received a glaze application. General Finishes Van Dyke Brown did the trick. Then it was several more coats of Parks Pro Finishes Clear Satin. I lightly sanded between coats. I really like the way they turned out.
The carcases are 3/4 inch prefinished birch with 1/2 inch backs. Each side is dadoed top and bottom with a rabbit along the back of each one. That makes for a nice, square box and once it is glued, screwed and stapled, it is rock solid. The face frames were attached to the boxes using pocket hole construction and glue.
Had to do a little drywall repair and relocate the electrical for the vent hood.
Got the 2×4’s attached to the wall. I shot a line using a laser. Just about ready to go.
Lots of shelf pin holes for these guys (39 inches tall).
Lazy Susan’s rear. :-)
Everything is falling into place.
Stick around. There is more to come.
