1st cabinets #1: Kitchen cabinets and doors


This is part 1 in a 1 part series: 1st cabinets

  1. Kitchen cabinets and doors

The framing on this doors are made of red oak and the inserts are hand cut slats out off old pallets. This was my first time to build any style of cabinet doors or cabinets ( as I had posted in a earlier entree) so it took some trail and error but in the end I am very pleased with the way they have turned out.My wife and I got the stain and the accent paint on the cabinet doors and the hardware installed. The finish product is a one of a kind custom built kitchen that we can enjoy and be proud of . I will try to get more pics added of progress on this first time enjoyable build.

Comming along very nicely, well done John. It’s turning out to be a fantastic kitchen. I love the amount of outlets above the counter, it’s always done right when you do it yourself.

Looking good I like the rough look on the door it’s a nice contrast. Looking forward to more pictures.


Going to be beautiful, I really like the doors.


That looks great! I could sell that all day long around here.

Thank you Jeff – it seems to be taken longer than I would like but only getting to work on it here and there due to running the bussness -thanks thorreain - you are correct doing it yourself with your on style my far is the best way to go and the yes outlets my wife has always said never enough in a kitchen now she can’t say that with this one — Daivd and Brenda - I have give that credit to my wife she came up with the idea on coloring and stain I just got the thrill of doing layout, build and scorching she put time in on staining and color art work -- jack — thank u — I am real proud off doors myself — brain — thank u — glad to know it looks professional enough to sell — might have try some to sell once this build is done
