I decided to make my own cabinet doors and drawer fronts for a Condo Remod.

What do y'all think of my first batch? .....Be honest, I can take it...:yes:

(and I really do want honest opinions.)

Thanks in advance.

I think they look very good. I like the details. My only comment is that I think you could have picked a better matched panel for the first door.

Yes I agree. When stained, I saw the Match wasn't so good.
These are for the Laundry room. I would make another if it were for the kitchen or bath.
Thanks for the comment.

Yes, they look nice. I do have to agree with cabinetman on the panels. I had the same challenge on my kitchen cabinets and on some even though I paid attention to that detail it shows up different when stained.

It looks like they are 1/2" plywood with solid wood edging. That's a lot of miters to make good but they look nice and tight.
:thumbsup:

thanks for the comments.
They are 1/2 poplar panels 4" wide with the frames being 1x3 poplar.
I thought I matched the grain well....but obviously not.
Thanks for the input. I know what I need to be more careful of next time.

I'm going to agree about matching the grain better. However considering that they are poplar, they are much more than just good looking. That is a job fit for any room in the house. :thumbsup:

Wow it looks great. The new faces and color are amazing. Congrats on a great job. The crown molding and everything make it look 100% better
