To all of you who think that by suggesting that people use a FREE software package is harsh, I'm sorry that I offended you. Sketchup is just another shop tool to me. You don't have to use it but it does give a person the ability to work thoroughly through an idea on "paper" before having to waste wood. I find this useful.
If you like to take large sheets of brown paper out and trace on it and that works for you, good on you. I wish you well. If, on the other hand, you would like the opportunity to try some other way than the "forum" approved approach, then give sketchup a try. You can see a sketchup kitchen on my spam website.
If you truly believe your own words that "forums are communities, take time to get to know your neighbors" then you should follow your own advice and take time to get to know me before accusing me of "blasting" into this community. Furthermore, I "wasted no time saying that I [sic] was in the cabinet business" because, I AM IN THE CABINET BUSINESS! Why would I waste time pussy footing around the facts? Am I supposed to work my way up to telling you what I do? Should I have started out by saying that I whittle sticks first?
Again, try not to get upset because someone came here and suggested that they knew something about woodworking without asking if it was o.k. to do so first! I am a very skilled woodworker and I am proud of my work.
Look at my website. Those kitchens are in the 30k and up range except the paint grade one. If you don't think I have the skill to post here regarding cabinet building, then just come out and say so.
If you think I "stirred up drama" here think again. All I did was offer suggestions on how to make frameless cabinets. I hereby withdraw my offer to help build cabinets.
Thanks to all of the others for the kind words and the private messages. This may well be my last post here. I know that I won't be missed and I won't miss anything either
This site is does not seem to be geared towards the professional woodworker.
