« Part 15: Back at it. Part 16 of kitchen cabinets series Part 17: All cabinets are in. »

My last two upper cabinets, nicknamed the twins, are hanging on the wall.

I am not sure why but it felt good to pack up and put away some of the tools that I will not need for some time. I guess it is a sign that I am closer to being done.

These cabinets took some time to build with the nine raised panels. I had enough of the wide boards to make six of the panels from a single piece of wood. The other three I had to joint. Still feels good to take rough sawn lumber to a finished piece.

One of the panels had a nasty split in it but the grain on the opposite side looked great. I stabilized the back side with epoxy befoe raising the panel.

I have two cabinets left; I will take a few days off from work and try and knock these out over the holiday weekend; the wife is getting anxious to order her new countertop.

Your kitchen is looking good! Best wishes for the weekend work. We pray all goes smoothly and your wife can get a countertop soon.
