22 white Shaker cabinets in kitchen, laundry room and bar, 5″ cove crown molding in kitchen
This home is especially iconic to me, as I did most of the work installing cabinetry, shelving, and the kitchen walls all out of Eucalyptus hardwood. This job holds seminal value as well. And I’d love to experience what I had when working there: an orange 1952 Chevy pickup.
From vintage to modern, rustic and beyond, we’re showcasing extraordinary kitchen cabinet ideas.
At the initial request, I had assumed the we would keep the same original configuration which consisted of only one eight-foot wall. But after doing take-off measurements, I realized that we could add double the size, as the wall behind the appliances wasn’t being used.
Cabinet reface Prescott AZ, kitchen remodel – white factory finish maple shaker doors, rolled on paint for cabinet boxes, 4 European hinge sizes. This was my 2nd job doing a reface and with all the problems I encountered, I doubt that I will offer this again.
To sum up my day, it all started when I arrived at my cabinet install job in Dewey. I mistakenly backed up my 2007 Ford van onto loose gravel in Doug’s driveway and got stuck. It took me 90 minutes to get it back on the pavement & now I have some landscaping clean-up to do .
When I arrived to install the cabinets, I noticed a design flaw and told Nick about it. His designer at Home Depot had ordered two 24 inch base cabinets for the seating side of the bar. These come with drawers, which are useless beneth a countertop overhang. We were able to exchange these for two 24 inch upper cabinets, with no time loss
He wanted 6 inch crown molding, and that monkey is not available in our small town, so I had to order it. I ended up getting 14: 3/4 x 6-1/8 x 84 Primed MDF Crown Moulding. More pieces equals more joints.
Tony and his wife were intent on replacing their maple cabinets with white slab doors until I showed them the price difference, along with the quality, of Nelson Cabinets.
What really makes these cabinets distinctive is the double crown molding (on top of the uppers) and light rail (beneath the uppers).
Nelson cabinets are so easy to sell. I believe what attracts customers first, is the price, but then I tell them about the quality and it’s a closed deal.
This covered her entire wall – 15 foot long by 9 foot tall. We got the lower cabinets from Nelson Cabinets, and I fabricated the shelves and countertop from 3/4″ melamine.
They choose FORMICA Laminate in Mineral Jet with Premiumfx Radiance Finish. This particular finish highlights the beautiful veining of stone and granite looks with 3D holographic facets that refract and reflect light.
They needed somebody to restore the cabinets & panels for a 78 VW Vanagon. This will be a project for me that will likely take about 4 weeks of off-and-on work…
Tim had just bought this new home in Granville, Prescott Valley, and wanted to save some money on garage cabinets. We ordered the conventional cabinets from Nelson Cabinetry, and I made the monster at the end of the garage.
Gina was taken aback with the prices she got from Lowes and Home Depot: they wanted upwards of $3000 for Formica countertops. I supplied them for $500 (see in pics) plus laminate cost.
This was a job for Ramido’s residence. I did a kitchen install for him about 10 months prior for a house that he flipped (one of my 1st jobs & didn’t get pics).
This is a job I got from Bobby Dixon, owner of Tri-City Home Improvement Pros. As you might notice, these cabinet doors are very different – and it’s a first for me, just seeing them.
A Few Small Wood Working Jobs
I planned out the kitchen, and Thomas ordered the cabinets from Nelson Cabinetry. You might have seen their ads on Craigslist. Their website is nelsonkb.com.
We used quarter-sawn red oak, finished with Varathane Traditional Cherry gel stain and 4 coats of lacquer, to achieve an “antique look.”
I worked for Dana Hayes at Kitchens Southwest in Scottsdale from 2000 to 2004. My work was mainly repair & clean-up, but I installed most of their displays, as you see here.
