As most of you know or have figured out, we are more of a hobby shop that does cusom wall unit/kitchens on the side. I just landed my 3rd job of the year, thus the reason I don’t consider us a full bore shop, YET!
Well, we are excited and blessed to land this “small” oak kitchen. A major hurtle I have is the lady insisted that I have the cabinets completed and installed by 6/12/2010. Otherwise we would not have gotten the job and we needed this job badly. I do not like rushing jobs at all as I understand you cannot rush woodworking.
I have a guy who I hired to help us, he is building the cabinets (which he is very good at). I am building the doors and my wife is building the dovetail drawers. My wife and I will complete the stain/lacquer on the doors. I purchased prefinished plywood for the cabinet boxes so that helps a lot. We all three will put the finishing touches on the cabinets such as install drawers and drawer faces and doors and finished panels, lazy suzan, etc… Then the helper/guy and I will install the cabinets. Anyway, that is the plan.
With this plan, I had to be extremely organized with my drawings/plans. We use a software which helps with that a lot. So I have figured out all of the measurements so that we are all beginning at the same time. I have never done it this way. In the past I would build the cabinets first and then measure the cabinets for the doors/drawers. I just hope my plan goes off without any issues. Any body ever do a process working three people at the same time on one kitchen before???
