This is a set of cabinet i just finished, First ones I had ever attempted to shop build and then install I have always built in, learning experience. they are built out of maple and birch ply. My first time to work with maple, beautiful wood. I did not make the doors, ordered them from local cabinet shop. I dont have the equipment it takes to make panel doors. The finish is minwax red mahogany and three coats of high gloss poly sprayed on .
I really enjoyed this project .

Great job on those, Mike. The crown molding looks great on them, too.

Those are beautiful cabinets. Your time and effort were well spent. If I ever get the chance, meaning if the better half will let me, I will do the same as you did on farming out the doors. Where I live there are at least 60 Amish cabinet shops and they have all the right equipment to make the doors. Keep up the good work.

Even us who have the tools often outsource the doors. Nice job!

Details , Details , Details….at first glance I thought they were too dark for a modern kitchen , but the color seems to accent all of the extra details that you have added to the pieces and I love the yellow walls and white crown moulding you have chosen ! Great job : ) I know how hard it is to stain Maple evenly …what’s your secret ?

You did a beautiful job. I love maple. In fact you know what, I have all maple cupboards in my house and when they told me they wanted 100.00 extra to make a door for my pantry I said nah. I thought I’ll give it a go. I did’nt do too bad, I posted it on my project page, it matched my other doors to a tee. All it cost me were a couple router bits from Harbor Frieght. I got the knowledge from a magazine, I think it was Wood. I already had the wood. OH yea and and 3 hinges. mike

Griff,

These are beautiful cabinets and you did a good job with the construction and the details. To be honest you probably can’t build the doors, in terms of equipment and time, for what it cost you to contract them out. So you probably made a wise decision in this regards.

Thanks for the post.

Those are great cabinets, the doors even came out with a little curl figure in them. I’m glad to see another guy from Mississippi on here too.
