Default GlennR from NC

New guy here.

Been building our home, and now getting into building kitchen cabinets. Using rough Walnut & Maple from a local sawmill. It's exciting to finally start doing some finer woodwork.

I hope I don't regret it, but I just couldn't see paying $12,000+ for a cabinet shop to make them considering I've done everything else from the ground up. We'll see.

ps. I have a decent Skil variable speed plunge/fixed base combo that seems like a pretty nice machine. I'm surprise to not see Skil listed in the model specific section here.

If this is your first set of cabinets make sure you plan well measure twice and take your time you'll do just fine.

I've been busy watching youtube videos about making cabinets. DIYHomeBuilt does a good job showing & explaining everything.

I'm also planning to make a butcher block countertop. There are a lot of good videos for those too.

How large is your plainer? I helped build one when I was working, out of Cedar. Gang plaining is the trick to perfection.
