no previous part Part 1 of Kitchen Cabinets series Part 2: Been a while »

As part of our kitchen remodel I’m taking on building the cabinets. We are modeling these off of a set at a local big box store. Here’s some pics just after I attached the face frames. They are ready for a finish and then install. Sorry about the picture quality. I was using my ipod. Should have better pics as I get them over to the house.

I’ve yet to build a 18” cabinet because it will be my “wild card” cabinet. A section of these cabinets must fit between two walls, so I will build this cabinet to fit after the others are installed. The toe kick will be add after install also, so it will be one seamless run.

-- Well, I'll be screwed, glued, and tattooed!

Thanks. The drawers and doors will come later. The number one priority is getting the kitchen to semi-working state. The style of the cabinets is giong to be simple. Comparable to Shaker or Mission.
