Well, it’s only taken 1 ½ years of working only on the weekends, but the kitchen and family room are complete and momma’s happy!
The kitchen boxes were made with prefinished plywood. The fronts were made with paint grade maple shaped on a router table and sprayed with lacquer and a clear coat. All slides and hinges are soft close blum. They were worth every penny. All lower cabinets are hand cut dovetailed drawers. Once I learned how to use a dozuki saw the dove tales went surprisingly quick.
The family room is all walnut, found some real good deals and shaped everything myself.. The veneers were ordered on line and the panels were laid up in a home made vacuum bag. The panels are wrapped by molding and 1×6 trim. Everything was prefinished with clear lacquer prior to installation. Using a 23g pin nailer, the heads disappeared and all the mess was confined to the shop.
Now, back to building furniture.
