I found this site when searching around looking for info on remodeling my kitchen.
I'm going to build all the cabinet boxes, drawer and faces myself since my wife has champagne kitchen tastes, but we don't want to spend $40K on cabinets.
We'll be doing frameless cabinets with shaker fronts, probably in Alder. Drawers will all be Baltic birch.
Here is a test drawer I just built from 12mm Baltic plywood.
The main tools I'm using are a Festool track saw and a Kreg router table.
