My shop (garage) built kitchen
« on: August 31, 2012, 07:27 PM »
Well after a lot of planning, time and effort my new kitchen is finally done.
Frames were created with the Kreg beaded face frame jig. Doors are inset.54916-0
Used 3/4 pre-finished ply for the boxes, 1/2 pre-finished ply for the drawers, maple and some 1/4 mdf for the doors. Finished all with Target em 6500 sprayed with Earlex spray station. Drawers are Blum soft close slides and doors are soft close Blum euro hinges.

Need to thank all those on this forum for the help.. I have read many hours of prev. posts and threads which helped a great deal and saved me alot of time and effort..

Nice looking job!

But why the gap above the 3 cabs over range wall?
I don't understand!?! I keep cutting it,and it's still too short!

I don't see what was wrong with the old kitchen??  

JUST KIDDING!  

Looks amazing.  Great job!!  You should have a lot of pride when people see it and ask you where you bought your cabinets and you tell them that

you made them.

No other reason than personal preference. I did have it higher and moved it down, just think it looks better...

Looks great!
Did you have to thin th 6500 when you sprayed with the Earlex?
What is the profile (router bit) on the frames?
Anything you would do differently next time?

I got it through Target coatings online. They have a discount coupon most every month if you join the mailing list

I did not thin at all. Used BIN shellac based primer, sanded with 220 then 3 coats of 6500 sanding with 220 between coats. I am really happy with the finish.
For the doors I used the Rockler matched Stile and Rail bits. I also got the setup block which was well worth it.
I think the only thing I may have changed would be that I started the doors using poplar. I switched to maple and went back and redid the first ones.

I can't speak for the op but maple is much harder so it is more durable than poplar.

That looks like a great job all around. How do you like the Kreg jig? Was that your first time using it? Eric

Overall I was happy with the Kreg. Doing it again I think I would build all the frames at the same time. The way I did the kitchen, building and replacing a few cabs at a time, made changing over the fences on the router table and resetting everything a pain.
The jig performed as advertised and is very well constructed glad I spent the $$'s

I switched to the maple because it is more durable. Just like the feel of the fasteners in it better. I have 3 small boys in the house so the doors and fasteners will get a workout
