    I just finished a job for a contractor/friend/neighbor today and got some pics for you all to see.
    I want to tell you that I did not build these, all the credit goes to three talented employees and one highly profesional subcontracted installer. I did however design, oganize, and oversee the whole thing.
    Part of my job (being the company owner and all).
    The reason I'm showing is because we only do about one a year of this nature.
    This house has over fifty cabinets in it though I will only show a few. It is all white hard maple with a white wash stain and clear lacquer topcote with black accent trim.
    The finish was done by the contractors painter.

    Dave, that is excellent quality workmanship, and is well planned and executed. That beautiful casework is something to be proud of buddy.

    Dave,

    Nice design and execution. Well done. Your lumber cost for 50 cabinets is probably about what my house cost 30 years ago.

    Looking good Dave, I wish you were closer to OK. I need some cabinets in my new to me, but older home.
    Nice work. Merry Christmas

    It took us about 2 weeks to build the cabinets and about 1 week to get them installed. That one took a little longer than usual. The average home takes about 2-3 days to build the cabinets for, and about 1/2 a day to install.

    I guess I'll never be a cabinet maker! Took me almost a month to build an entertainment center!
