Build your own cabinets

Sooo...is the regular cast of characters out there? Should we start over here?

Ok...I am thinking of making my own cabinets for a kitchen renovation. This is a good idea, right? :D

NO!!!!! It's a terrible idea!!! Don't do it!!!! :D :D

Walter, Walter, Walter, great to see you over here! When you get a chance, give us an update of where you're at with your cabinet project, and while you're at it, throw up a link to your photo account so these fine folks can see your handy work.

How are those blinds coming along? Have you found your striped shirt and brown hat yet? :p ;)

Re: Build your own cabinets

I think its a great idea if you have all the tools and the right know how. I'm planning on building my own cabinets for my house that I am finishing a major remodel on. As you know with building your own cabinets you can get exactly what you want and you know that quality workmanship went into it. Good luck and have fun doing it

Re: Build your own cabinets

Sabo, Walt started a thread on the old forum well over a year ago when he started building cabinets for his kitchen. He went from not having much equipment or know-how to a pretty well stocked shop and doing his thing. He even poured his own concrete counter tops. If you're interested, I could wrangle up a link to the old thread for a look-see.

I see I didn't realize until recently that there had been another site for TOH posts. I would like to see the old thread if possible. I've been building cabinets and furniture part time for about 12 years now and like to see how other people are doing it.
Thanks

Re: Build your own cabinets

Here you go. Started in July of '05 and now over 800 posts long. It is the longest running thread TOH has ever had, and it's been a great ride.

Hopefully the Moderators are able to save this thread in some form for this new site. It would be such a shame to lose all the info that has been passed along over the years. At the very least, we'll try to get Walt to repost the link to his photo album of the process.

Enjoy.

Re: Build your own cabinets

I dunno, but my wife I'm sure would rather have seen me make kitchen cabs for a customer rather than these...but I needed to try out some new Infinity raised panel router bits, some left over 5/4 mahogany from the porches I built here and a lil' poplar and some green stain I made and had a lil time tween' projects so I started this dopey project on my van...I should be done today and I'll come back and post the final results...Jus' messin' around was all :rolleyes:
I know.. I know get back to work....ugh

Re: Build your own cabinets

Finished results will be posted here later this evening I hope...my wifes gonna kill me if i spend any more time on this :mad:

Re: Build your own cabinets

My business partner was always trying to get me to do something like that instead of the "rustic" pull-outs I built into the bed. What she doesn't understand is the level of abuse that the back of a contractors truck sees, and that something like that wouldn't remain looking that good for very long.:D
