Fresh start of building!

Hello guys,

As an installer are you working with a cabinet builder, or just installing manufactured cabinets such as sold by Lower, Home Depot, etc?

Welcome to the club.

Software won't cut any lumber, you need saws for that. :smile3:
Cabinet boxes are pretty easily built with a minimal amount of tools. It gets more difficult if you plan to make the doors too. Most Diy just buy doors from a door manufacturer. I even worked for a cabinet shop onetime that bought doors rather than making them themselves.

And there are shops that specialize in cabinet doors only. I know of one in Dallas. I can buy a door as cheap as I can make one in my shop.

If you don't have time to do it right the first time, when will you have time to do it over?
