Curious, what type of wood? I m guessing Poplar… What type of paint/finish? What would you do or not do again?

Thank you, Ive come a long way since that first job. Ive built a lot of kitchen cabinets, bookcases, vanities,etc. Im doing a kitchen job now thats testing my abilities to the max! It has a curved wood range hood, corbels, flutes, acanthus leaf arched crown mould over glass doors. The glass doors have a fancy scrolled mullion that I have not found yet. I happened to see one on one the members page here so thats why I joined so I can contact him and see if he made it or where can I get 4 of them. Rick Meadows

The wood was soft maple and the finish was lacquer with van dyke glaze. Only thing i would do is paint the cabinets myself. I didnt have any spray equipment back then so I had to sub it out. Now I have a kremlin spray rig and a paint booth.

That looks great. Wish my first kitchen job looked that nice!

You did a beautiful job on these cabinets. They are very attractive.

Great job! I particularly like the top glass cabinet portion. It makes storage much more interesting while concealing any mess inside since it is on the upper deck so only a subtle area of the interior will be made visible.

Have your say...
