Default Home Made Kitchen Cabinets

My wife wanted to buy new cabinets for the kitchen. She was looking at the cheapo particle board cabinets at Home Depot and Lowes. I told her I could build better ones at home for less. I am using all red oak for the doors and frames. The boxes themselves are 1/2 in ply with a 1/4 red oak on top. The Home Depot cabinets would have run about $1,500 by the time we bought the trim and the other accessories to go with it. I am in it about $600 including some nice new tools!

Here is how it is going so far. This will be the one under the sink. 8 more to go. They will be a Red Chestnut Finish when done. What do you guys think?

It was a lot more work than I had expected. I made a set for our old house about 10 years ago. I forgot how dificult it can be. But I am really happy with the results so far.

Thanks. I am thinking that when I am done I could make a very nice presentation case for my old 586. That should be a fun project!

I can't believe how long this took. The cabinets are finally in! I did the tile floor about a month ago. It is finally coming together. There is light at the end of the tunnel. I still have to do some caulking and painting. And I will be puting in new countertops too. Now I need to make something nice for me. Maybe some kind of gun storage for the camper.

Nicely done.

Very very nice!!! Plus the fact that you made them yourself. Did you incorporate hidden weapons compartments?
