The problem with most starting it the cost to have someone build them and finish. If the job was bid at $7000, one feels they got a lot of wiggle room for tools, material and time. Problem… cabinets take space and time. Even if the+money is there, time usually isn’t..+1 start smaller. Build a bathroom vanity or storage cabinets for your shop. Better to find out on a smaller scale your skills and your tools short comings.
I was raised in AlabamaI’m in AL and have my layout. Not changing very much from current layout, but moving fridge, sink & DW. I’m planning to make individual boxes. The kitchen is only 9’ x 11.5”.
Not sure where they are going after this year. Bad two yearsWar Damn Eagle! Congrats on the Championship!
Blum is generally more than Grass, I won’t buy KV drawer slides anymore..Blum is worth the cost. I’ve used KV slides, too.
Do you have a budget for tooling?Yes
This may be a ”one & done” but I have three daughters. The older two are 25 year old twins. I know when I finish this house, her twin will be buying one. The 22 year old wants to flip houses, but doesn’t want to help me or even watch. I’m not financing that!
I stopped using the KV’s because of problems. It could be just a bad lot I got , but scared me away from them..Slides I use 100% KV MUV slides. I get them at a great price point and they work extremely smooth. I have even redone my system for furniture and have been using them in my dressers. Hinges I use mostly KV, but I like the Blum soft close ff hinges too.
I have PB interiors.Those look nice. Know 3/4” plywood is standard or preferred, but would 1/2” still be good? Idk if cost savings would be significant. I would think they would still be better than particle board or stock cabinets. We are also doing Quartz counters, so I want to make sure cabinets will support it.
