I just completed my kitchen remodel. It took a couple of years to finish the cabinets as I was taking classes along the way to learn the technique. The cabinets are maple faceframe and 3/4” maple/birch ply. All drawer and doors are Blum soft-close. Nothing slams in my kitchen. Since I wasn’t proficient at spraying yet, I sent the completed cabinets out to have them finished. I am now taking a finishing class, so hopefully my next project can be finished at home.

Real nice job, I am on the same project “a new kitchen” Do you have any plans for the box construction? How did you attach the face frames? I started a thread on what biscuit joiner to get and I am now thinking Pocket hole screws. Did you use shaker style bits to cut the doors?

Very, very nice. I have a stack of rough cut maple in my garage that hopefully will turn out as nice as yours did. I really like the countertop, cabinet color and tile combination and I love the sink style also.

BTW, looks like you got your monies worth on the classes you were taking.

Sally: Your kitchen looks great and Jean has kept me in the loop for the past 2 years of all the trials and tribulations you’ve gone through to complete this project. Those classes and your stickler for detail has paid off in beautiful dividends. Good job, hope to see your kitchen live and up close someday.
