Beautiful kitchen. I’m guessing you used all touch latches instead of knobs which gives it such a unique look.

Beautiful!

What brand/type of white paint do you use, and how do you apply it? When it comes to applying paint to projects, I am probably the worst one on here. I don’t know what type of wood to use (hardwood, softwood, MDf, or ???), how to prepare it (sanding to what grit, etc.), how to select the paint (oil/water based, any particular brand), how to apply it (rattle can, brush, foam, roller, HVLP, airless/traditional spray system), or anything that will yield an acceptable finish.

I use maple mostly if it’s painted kitchen , means maple plywood for boxes and solid maple for doors, if its not raised panel door i use mdf inner panel ( takes paint nicer than 1/4 “ ply) sand everything with 220 and i use lacquer paint precatalized chemcraft , send betven coats with 320 and always doo clear last coat , more durable in my opinion than pigmented top coat . For spraying i use sata 5000 rp gun wich is slightly less needy for big compressor than a hvlp gun, i have 80gallon compressor

I’ve done a couple kitchens with coloured lacquer (M.L. Campbell), but I’ve been disappointed in how easily it chips with normal wear and tear. If I get another request for a white kitchen, I’ll have to try the clear top coat. Thanks for the tip.

Beautiful job, BTW. Millwork and attention to detail is very impressive.
