These are a few more kitchens I have done. They are all made of red oak with different colored stains with polyurethane and waxed. The box construction was 3/4” plywood if it showed and 3/4” partical board if it did not. The backs were 1/4” masonite. The doors and drawer covers were also 3/4” plywood. The face frames, moldings, door and drawer trim was 4/4 solid stock. The drawer stock was 1/2” baltic birch with 1/4” masonite bottoms.

Tom, as always these are gorgeous cabinets. They are well constructed and designed. I noticed the pulls on the last set of cabinets. This is not the usual orientation. Is there any special reason for this orientation?

I did a lot of cabinets with this style of door and drawer covers. The people did not want to pay for raised panel doors so I came up with this design. It is a 3/4” panel with 3/4 X 1 1/2 solid stock around the edge. I would cut a 3/8 X 1 1/8 rabbit on the back side of the trim and radius the edges. Then I would cut 45 degree corners fasten to the edges of the panels. It gave you a 3/8” lip door and drawer front.

Scott: The lady wanted the pulls put on that way. You know the old saying, The customer is always right. If she is paying, I like it!

Chuck: Finally got the stitches out of the foot the other day and am down to one crutch now. I also have to keep the wood shoe on when doing any walking. I don’t go back to the doctor till the 28th. The shop keeps calling to me!

Thanks for asking guys.

God Bless
