This kitchen was designed to match customers furniture of the same style. The existing furniture is made of quartersawn oak, the new cabinetry was made of Cherry. Interiors are natural birch, dovetailed drawer boxes, full extension under-mount slides, trash pullout, lazy Susan, granite tops, new tile back-splashes w/copper inlays. Water-based finishes sprayed with HVLP! About $35,000, without appliances.

Great looking kitchen. You did a fine job. How does that water based spray working for you? I haven’t been satisfied with it. In my stuff it didn’t make the grain pop like the oil based. You seem to have accomplished that though.

The trick is . . .

Seal with Shellac.

I’ve been on water based materials for 20 years, I’ve found it’s best to stick with one product line. Find one that works for you, that has someone you can talk to about problems. I’ve used Aquacoat for years and been very pleased with it and the help I receive.

Finishing is not as difficult as it seems. Spraying with HVLP makes it even easier with water based materials.

That’s a very tasteful job. Bargain price, too. Indulge me, if you will, and tell me about how your constructed the doors. They look like floating panels. What bit set did you use? Shaper or router? Custom knives or stock? I really, really like the appearance. Seal with shellac, I hear you Sam. Shellac is my favorite jar in the shop.

You’re all very kind, thank you.
They are reverse raised panel doors. I never like the way a 1/4” panel sounds when you close the door. I always give my customer 3/4” solid wood, reverse raised panels, when they want the flat panel look.
Stock shaper knives, in this case perfectly square. No detail.

Thanks Sam, so is there really a raised panel on the interior? I guess you can’t use an undercutter with this method. I’m with you, the sound of a 1/4” panel sounds like a 1/4” panel;) These are some very attractive cabinets. I have a current door project that I want to try some newly purchased Shaker bits on; my next door project will feature your reverse raised panels. Thanks again.
