Default Hello from NJ

Hello all. I'm a DIY'er with some basic tools and decent skills. My focus is on my kitchen where I want to make my own flat panel cabinet doors in order to upgrade but not spend thousands. I'm looking at 6 single doors, 8 doubles and 6 drawer fronts. The kitchen has standard .75" thick oak cabinets with a very dark stain but since we upgraded appliances I had to cut out portions of the cabinets so re-framing, making matching doors, changing the hardware and painting it all just wouldn't work. I've come across some of the modern european style hinges that can be installed on the older cabinets with the framing around them. If anyone can recommend a decent router and router table that's not gonna break the bank, I'd appreciate it. I have every home improvement and tool store around me. Please direct me to any videos and tutorials you think might help me with this project. I will one day have a decent workshop for my projects, home improvements and working with my wife who is very artistic. Thanks and it's great to be here!

Hey, Marc; welcome!
I've got this guy's book by the same title and I really found it extremely helpful.
You might find the same with his DVD(?).
Amazon.com: Making Kitchen Cabinets: Paul Levine: Movies & TV
Or, look for the book...
Amazon.com: Making Kitchen Cabinets: A Foolproof System for the Home Workshop (9780918804945): Paul Levine: Books
