Here a kitchen my friend and I built back in the summer of 2009. The kitchen was built using solid maple, stained to match the flooring, and the carcases were constructed using fairfield maple melamine. The stain was from Triclad and it was sealed with 2 coats of Chemcrafts Plastofix

This is a nice set of cabinets, Steve. I particularly like taking the cabinetry to the ceiling. It is a challenge to get to the top shelves for those of us who are vertically challenged but it does give the kitchen a nice look.

Nice job.

I think it turned out great…May I ask what cabinet bits you are using?? Or are they shaper bits and what variety…I am looking into a better set for my 2 1/4 hp router and table.

Thanks for sharing

we used freuds RP2000 and RS2000 insert shaper cutters for the door construction and Id have to get my freud catalog for the outside profile.

Elegant and beautiful. Great work Steve!

I agree with Scott on the cabinetry to the ceilling. Beside it looks nice and neat, you have less area for spider webs and dust deputy.
