Hello LJ Buddies,

Its been a while. Catching up on old projects.

I finished these upper cabinets in December. This where my kids do their homeschooling (hybrid).

I did the base cabinets the year before.

All made of Birch plywood, even the face frames.

Fine tuned my HVLP skills using the Earlex 5500 on this one.

Thanks for looking.

Mauricio

Gorgeous! If my wife sees this, she’ll want a setup just like it for her sewing room.

Thanks everyone!

Paul, I used latex paint from Sherwin Williams, cut it with a little water and Flotrol. If you have an HVLP, check out a podcast from Modern Woodworkers association where they had the guy from Earlex on talking about how to spray latex.

Worked great! Layed down super flat and professional looking. I’ve never tried rolling on the paint using flotrol, I bet it would lay down pretty flat to.

These cabinets look very nice and are also very practical.

Thanks everyone.

Andy, yeah I’m still wood working quite a bit. Just haven’t had a lot of time for lumberjocks lately.
