The cabinets are made with maple veneered and or birch veneered, veneer core 3/4” plwood with the same 1/2” backs. Face framed with embedded beading which is cokkied to the cabinets.

Hard maple dovetailed drawers on tandem motions.

Doors and drawer fronts are poplar M and T with 1/4” offset mouldings on 3/8” veneered panels.

The glass doors were a PITA and am not sure if I will ever do that again as each piece of glass (all 16 panes) get a mitered retainer…...........did I say it was a PITA…........all doors are hung with pewter butt hinges.

A soffit piece is added to the tops and then crown mould and a 5” baseboard that is sculpted.

The interiors will get left natural and coated in lacquer. The exterior will be painted, then rubbed out (distressed)

I know what you mean about the glass.

Nice work!
I’m just waiting for the lacquer to cure a week or so on my own bathroom cabinets (birch ply cases, solid doors) before I install them in a weekend or two. When I started, I intended it to be a dry run for my own kitchen project… but having gone through it, I’m not sure if I’ll do it again! I prefer those smaller projects ;)

But yours looks great!

You did a really great job on the cabinets. Did you do the design yourself or were the specs given to you by the customer? Great job. Hope to see more of your work.

Thanks for the kind words

The lay out and basic design are done by others. The detailed drawings are done my me as is the construction/engineering.

This work was sub-contracted to me by another cabinet shop so I will never see it installed and completed
