I finally got enough time to finish the cabinet doors and drawer fronts I was doing for a friend. I had already delivered the bathroom drawers and door, just had to finish building the kitchen. In total, he has 15 doors and 18 drawer fronts.

Next up is another kitchen, but that one will have raised panel doors that will have to be stained and coated.

He’s applying a natural oak stain with a semi-gloss poly coat. He built the cabinets, but didn’t have the tools to do the doors. When he has everything mounted, I’ll update this post with the finished job.

I like the simple panel doors. Looks good!

I have made quite a few rail and stile doors for cabinets using router bits, found I have never been able to make enough per door to pay for my bits.

Big door shops in our area can build them so cheap, I can make up to a whopping $1.69 a door (labor), so hardly worth it unless you need it instantly.

I agree about the money aspect. That is why I do these for my friends. I haven’t done the math yet, but I’d be surprised if I made that much. If I had to make a living from this, I would definitely have the production machines necessary for jobs like this.

Cessna – you are spot on with that comment. My friend provided the cut timber – I took it from there. I tossed quite a bit of scrap just because it was wood I would not want on something I made. That is something I can control. Thanks for reminding us of those qualities we can control, even if money is not one of them!
