John, really nice job! I really like how you used the angle corners on your large outside corners, and island. I cant tell by the pics, but how did you treat the outside corners on the upper cabinets, and other base cabinets?
Again, looks very nice!!!

I added a photo showing the way I do the end panels. I wanted something that looks different and save the three & half inches that the 45degree corners take. Thanks
Very nice.Nice job on the pantry, how did you keep the doors in alignment at the bottom.

I back the 3/4 inch frame and doors with a 3/4 inch plywood made with a plastic core. Expensive but it seems to help stop the warpage that regular plywood gives.Also I use 6 Euro hinges on each door and with the adjustments they provide you can align everything up.

Great job, love the doors leading to the pantry! Nice way to include them into the kitchen design (also the pocket door- did you make that?)
But why the knobs at the top of the little doors?
John Shaw [02/11/2007]
Thanks Sig...Yes I made both the pantry and pocket doors. Glad you arent my customer LOL You found the only mistake that I thought was bad enough to fix that I didnt fix. I had already drilled the holes at the top before I realized what I had done. TOO MUCH LACQUER FUMES?????
with euro hinges, could you flip the doors? switch left and right?

If the frame and the doors are perfectly square....yes you can. I have found out that not always but some of the times it works better to fit the doors left and right.
