That is very nice looking. Great job. With your experience I am sure I could learn a ton from you.
I might need to ask a few questions in the upcoming future as I just sold 2 jobs, both if them are frameless jobs. One is very large and is slab door new residential construction, other is shaker frame and panel smaller remodel kitchen only. Honestly my primary experience is with face frame. So there is going to be a learning curve ahead, might message you if I have a question.

Thanks Jerry,Feel free to message me, I would be glad to share whatever I could.I’ve done a lot of frameless. To be honest, it’s not much different, just no frame, lol

What edge bander do you have?

I have a SCMI Basic 2. It’s just a small entry level bander, but I have had it and used it a lot over the last 10 years. One of the best investments I have made since I started making European style (frameless) cabinetry.

I like the period you chose. Timeless.
I’m not a big fan of frameless. I’ve been using a 1-1/4” frame with full-overlay hinges. Jerry might want to try them if he’s a face frame guy.

Thanks John,Awe, looks like a Blumotion Compact 39C ?
I like face frames myself in fact I use them whenever I think the job calls for them but with a lot of jobs, such as the one I just posted, there’s no need for a frame and with the lower budget you can whip these out and still be competitive. IMO of course

Those are nice! Melamine is a good choice for a church as they get a lot of use and wear.
The ones at our church are nearly worn out, I would like to build them new ones but they have a cabinet maker under contract.

Nicely done, melamine or not. :-)
I actually prefer frameless, but with frame and panel doors. You get close to traditional look, but with the ease of construction and added space of frameless cabinets.

I would like to get more into frameless cabinet construction myself. So this project posted has me thinking. It is very good work.
I have reduced my FF to 1 1/4” and that works ok.
Basically I just want to give the customer what they want, if it is frameless then we will go that route. If they want a FF cab then we will go that route.
