    Default Build your own cabinets

    Sooo...is the regular cast of characters out there? Should we start over here?

    Ok...I am thinking of making my own cabinets for a kitchen renovation. This is a good idea, right?

    NO!!!!! It's a terrible idea!!! Don't do it!!!!

    Walter, Walter, Walter, great to see you over here! When you get a chance, give us an update of where you're at with your cabinet project, and while you're at it, throw up a link to your photo account so these fine folks can see your handy work.

    How are those blinds coming along? Have you found your striped shirt and brown hat yet?

    I think its a great idea if you have all the tools and the right know how. I'm planning on building my own cabinets for my house that I am finishing a major remodel on. As you know with building your own cabinets you can get exactly what you want and you know that quality workmanship went into it. Good luck and have fun doing it

    Sabo, Walt started a thread on the old forum well over a year ago when he started building cabinets for his kitchen. He went from not having much equipment or know-how to a pretty well stocked shop and doing his thing. He even poured his own concrete counter tops. If you're interested, I could wrangle up a link to the old thread for a look-see.

    I see I didn't realize until recently that there had been another site for TOH posts. I would like to see the old thread if possible. I've been building cabinets and furniture part time for about 12 years now and like to see how other people are doing it.
    Thanks

    Here you go. Started in July of '05 and now over 800 posts long. It is the longest running thread TOH has ever had, and it's been a great ride.

    http://boards.pathfinder.com/cgi-bin...i.2@.ef125b0/0

    Hopefully the Moderators are able to save this thread in some form for this new site. It would be such a shame to lose all the info that has been passed along over the years. At the very least, we'll try to get Walt to repost the link to his photo album of the process.

    Enjoy.

    Hi all!!

    Just thought I would drop in and say hello.

    Nothing much to report as of late. Been trying to do outdoor stuff. Diggin out a Juniper stump took the life out of me and about 4 hours

    DW still buggin me for cabinet door and drawer fronts. My motivation has been in the trash as of late. Tired to sell my Outback (some may recall the rear hatch issues) but got no sellers. Getting the car ready to sell took a weekend...so getting no buyers is a real bummer.

    Blinds still an issue. I need some machined parts and my buddy is too busy at work to help me out. I may have to do it myself (eekkkk!)

    Pictures are at http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ouse/Cabinets/ and click on sub-folders.

    Well...gotta run. real "work"
