    Alder Cabinets

    finally this job is done, been working on this one for about a month now part time. now that i'm full time i am looking forward to jobs moving more quickly.

    this is just the kitchen, i did bathrooms too but they are to be painted so not that interesting. the kichen is all alder, with the exception of some of the purchased moldings and appliques that could only be found in maple. the homeowner is a painted by trade and is going to finish with a very dark red stain and a super high gloss poly or varnish, so the difference most likely won't be noticed. spiral legs were also purchased. doors were outsourced because i don't have time to do them right now. raised panel ends were done by yours truly however. everything else is me.

    the hood was a first for me, not too bad for the first try. i probably couldn't have it without autocad though. i worried about this thing fitting right for 4 weeks.

    well here ya go, i took lots of pics cause i know how you all are

    thanks alot stu,

    no, i don't do counter tops. granite coming on monday.

    and i also don't fill the nails holes, the finisher will do that because he will match his putty to the color of the stain.


    keep looking.

    thanks

    Which spiral column is correct - right or left? I'm guessing you need to turn the left one over...

    I sure hope that square section at the top is a separate piece, and not an integral part of the turning!

    Nice looking job Chris! On your finished ends did you miter them to the face frame?

    On the euro job I'm doing I'm going to build in the refrigerator. On one side it's going to be a raised panel end and the other side is going to be maple plywood so the pantry cabinet can but against it. I'm going to do a small face frame around the fridge and was wondering if I should miter or butt joint to the side panels. I'm thinking miter to the raised panel and but to the maple panel. What do you think?

    Also I noticed your top drawers fronts are all solid stock and the bigger bottom ones are raised panel. Is this standard for your designs? I have about 17 drawers in this job and trying to figure the best way to do the drawer fronts.

    WOW! I couldn't cook anything there. I would be terrified of ruining my purdy cabinets!
    Of course, I can't cook anything anywhere. I use a recipe book to boil water.
