    High end cabinet

    So I have this kitchen job. Well it's been on going for some time now. If you remember I put some new draws in my shop that's when I installed the bulk of the kitchen. The owner bought the cabinets for the job and went to some high end cabinet shop to get them. They paid big coin for these so I just had to post some picks of them.

    pic one is how they hold the whole thing together.
    Pic 2 is the cabinet all put together
    3 4 and 5 more views
    6 7 and 8 the whole thing broke down in under 10 minutes.
    7 and 8 show the joinery that they use with these knock down clips.
    Now IMO these are just cheap borg cabs that shouldn't be sold to the unsuspecting public. For the price they paid I could have built them cabs from scratch that would have actually fit in the kitchen.
    This one has been brought home to be modified into a oven cab.

    IT seems I hear about more kitchen cabinet rip-offs than any other part of woodworking. I suppose that is because it is an area where a lot of activity takes place as opposed to high-end custom built-ins or something. A member on another forum who I helped out with a cyclone install has a portfolio of the high-end, custom kitchen installs done by others that he has repaired/replaced for his customers. Makes it hard on the guys who are doing quality work who get lumped together with the losers.

    Chuck the owners got what they deserved. They did not do their homework. You should sting them now for the real custome work.

    Those must have been "Made in China" flat pack kits with a ton of hype marketing to give the "snob" value. Oh boy....now you gotta fix it all.

    Hey make sure you leave them plenty of busines cards, they gonna be calling you back when that lot starts to fall apart.
    cheers
