cabinets

Postby mtngun » Fri Mar 30, 2018 6:37 pm

I've been neglecting shooting projects while I build cabinets. I had never built cabinets until now so it has been a learning experience and many newbie mistakes were made, nonetheless the cabinets are functional, and I'm gradually getting better & faster at it.

The visible pieces are local blowdown Douglas fir that was milled with an Alaskan mill, then planed.

Douglas fir for the countertops, too. It's a softwood so it will get dinged and scratched, but after looking at prices for storebought countertops I decided that I could live with dings and scratches. :lol:

A small wall cabinet to fit in the corner.

After trying it both ways, I prefer to expose the knotty back side of the ACX douglas fir plywood, rather than the smooth front side. The smooth side tends to be boring, though it varies from sheet to sheet.

There are still several loose ends to tend to, but the homemade kitchen cabinets and backsplash are up and running. Now on to the next phase of construction.
