This is all for you, Neo.

Took delivery of some doors today. Nothing real fancy, just paint grade shaker. Maple frames and a mdf panel. Drawer fronts are mostly 5 piece but one little vanity needed some small solid fronts.

56 parts in all. All the edges are broken and ready for paint.

Total cost = $1258.60

average part cost = $22.48

The parts were ordered one week ago today when we started the job. Cabinets are just about ready for doors.

Thats how we roll.

My gift to you Neo, and its not even Christmas.

Let the banter continue:laughing:

That's a real expensive work bench you got there Gus!
I like to think of it as a sorting table.:whistling

What....no one else even gets a melamine door? What a rip off.
Come on by, I'll give you all the melamine scraps we have.

Neo doesn't get the doors, silly. He gets the entertainment of the outsourcing issue. He is easily entertained and those are the only types I can entertain.

Thats a lot of doors for the $$$.
Thank you Warner. Finally someone gets it. The power of outsourcing!

You my new almost best friend now. Loneframer would get jealous if I didn't put the almost part in there.

You don't get to be Gus' best friend until you let him photoshop your face onto a huge woman in a two piece.:no:

This got me to thinking........and perhaps this has been discussed at length her before......but do most of you order your doors BEFORE you build the boxes and face them......or do most of you wait til you get the faces on the cabinets before you order the doors??

Good question, I'm quessing it depends on the lead time...Order the doors, start your boxes a few days ahead of that and the boxes are getting done about the time the doors arrive?

What does..."edges are broken" mean?

I realise this is a clique type discussion among the elite...but indulge me please.
