  1. Wood Finishing
    Our kitchern has custom, built in place oak cabinets from early '80s. They are galley style with layout that includes 45deg angles . To save money, I am taking oak doors and drawer fronts off and making cherry shaker style (and replacing drawer boxes/slides). We are also using PSA to resurface...

    Hi everyone, I'm currently in the final phase of building my own home. My wife and I want to have our kitchen cabinets painted. The problem is that we are not getting the same advice from different painters as far as what finish would be best. First, the guy at Sherwin-Williams said he...
  3. Trim Carpentry & Built-Ins
    I am basically a painter, but I increasingly I am called on to do more cabinet tasks since my finishes are so professional looking and there seems to be a shortage of woodworkers who will come out and make modifications for the homeowner. One of the more common problems is the very nice white...

  7. Tips, Tricks, & Homemade Jigs
    Hey- I don't post often. But I do have a problem come up a lot as I am a cabinet painter and stain matcher on most stained wood. Anyway- I know get this problem a lot--put hidden hinges on my old doors, and fix the colonial thing that goes over the sink, which is often curved with two swoops...
  8. Wood Finishing
    Our kitchen cabinets are less than 10 years old and look great except for a few spots. What is the best way to repair these spots without having to refinish the entire kitchen. Attaching photos to show. Some of the spots are caused by water (near the sink), and the others are just wear by...

    My kitchen cabinets are white lacquer. I just had some trim added and they painted the wood with water base wall paint. Does not have the texture or look of the cabinets. I'm guessing I have to sand down the trim to smooth it and can than repaint with lacquer. Am I correct? Any ideas as to...

    Check out these cabinets I made using plywood and mdf. I made all the cabinets and my wife did a faux paint job on them to make them look like Tuscan finish ones at lowes. I still have to install an oak floor. I made the new oven hood so it would house the old standard hood. I...

    On another BB that I am a member of I notice that most of the members do not do wood working for a living but a hobby. So just out of curiosity what do you do for a living?
