Re: Home Made Cabinets


You can't even buy material for what you can get IKEA cabinets for. Unless you're retired or are working for satisfaction, you can't beat them.

Re: Home Made Cabinets


No offense, but me putting ikea cabs in my house would be like going to a dentist with missing teeth.

Re: Home Made Cabinets


Krist, IMHO, if you are outsourcing the fronts and finish, you are better off ordering both from the same company. Have the FF's, doors, drawerfronts, moldings and end panels fab'd and finished by the same company. All you have to do is assemble...

Conestoga has an easy to assemble cabinet line, but Eliaswoodwork has great finished product and they have free shipping over a certain amount which you will exceed ($1800)... I believe they also have an RTA option now...

www.eliaswoodwork.com
www.conestogawood.com

In either case, you will end up saving a significant amount of money for ordering and assembling yourself... Best part is, finish is consistent across the board and all products mistakes are on them...

Best of luck... 8^)

Finally starting to assemble and install cabs. Unfortunately, loading pictures is giving me trouble at the moment. I'll try to upload some later on.

Did you end up making the fronts yourself or buying them?

Re: Home Made Cabinets


I did make the fronts myself. Had them painted by porcelain patch and glaze, who did a great job. I'm doing one wall at a time and will have to get a new router table or small shaper before the next wall as the existing table has deflection in it making it useless for doors.
