Are you making the complete cabinets or did you start with shells & adding your own fronts?

I designed the cabinets and had a shop cut my boxes on a CNC cutter/router. I supplied the plywood because I wanted 3/4 pre finished clear maple boxes...

Awesome. I almost bought some (very few) la cornue cabinets. About $3k a linear foot, and I like yours better. I ended up just installing the giant sink above instead.

I guess this will fall under home improvement.

I had about 50 trees, 30 large ones taken down at my new house. Most got chipped and I originally want to just keep the cherry and white oak for firewood (love how they smell)

But it just pained me to burn such beautiful logs, and with a few ideas kicking in my head I found a mobile saw mill to come mill them up

A lot of 5/4 boards, a few massive slabs for desks and steps I have planned, and then a few monster beams just bc I could and a real nice chunk of cherry for a mantle

A lot of cherry, and white oak. One hickory and a huge and straight red oak

I ended up tossing a lot of locust and other trees that could have been good but there is only so much I can do with this wood. And I'll still have plenty of firewood for years.

All stacked in my basement (except the beams, have a friend coming tomorrow to help me carry those). Should have something nice made up in a year or so after they dry.

if nothing else my basement smells phenomenal now

That is cool. If you decide to have mouldings, or need any milling/shaping let me know. The guy I use is great.

That is really nice. I just had 3 large trees taken down but I do not that the space, time to tackle what you just did.

When I get around to making cool stuff I'll have to go to someone that did what you did. I am recycling old skids for little stuff.

Looking forward to seeing your projects.

Thanks all. I'm sure there will be some loss in the drying process, and I won't be able to do anything for a year but hopefull ill get some really nice furnishings done. I don't have much experience with wood working but most of my ideas are very simple. So I think it will come out nice.

Did you use a specific program to design the boxes? We can't find much we like or that fits in our tiny 100yr old kitchen.... and we can't afford custom.

Prior to Demo I built a temp kitchen in the basement with a stove, sink, stainless counter.

Regarding the "custom" boxes. I took my dimensions to a cabinet maker with a CNC programmer and cutter. He charged me about $800 for the engineering then $50 a sheet to cut the plywood. It was well worth it. I have 19 cabinets in the kitchen. With my new job I have only been able to work on it about once a week.

My tiny beach cottage's kitchen renovation. I worked on this most Sundays and some Saturdays this March through last weekend. I did all of the work myself, although some days I hired a helper.

Kitchen Remodel - Part I - Album on Imgur

Its not finished yet and have decided to take the summer off so that my family and friends can use the house. There is still a lot to do and mistakes to be fixed. I will resume in September.

Album is quite long.

Hopefully someday there will be a 90 ST parked outside of this house...
