I built some cabinets for a church that’s near us.
They’re simple oak cabinets with flat panel doors. They are fastened to CMU block walls, which is kind of a pain. I made the countertop, and all components. The door on the very left of the 3rd picture was left off for the electrician, I did make one for it though! And those silly little vertical pieces of wood that go between the backsplash and the upper cabinets are just temporary braces while the glue sets on the backsplash… I guess that’s the bad part about installing cabinets and only getting one chance to snap a photo.
Here are a few quick progress shots:

Very nicely done.

I also see insulated garage doors—very necessary in your climate too!

Oh yeah, this project had a first for me: Successfully spraying polyurethane in the coldest winter months, IN my shop. I used Sherwin Williams Waterborne Polyurethane, thinned about 17% with RO water. Learning curve was steep, but I am pretty happy with the finish, and I didn’t blow myself up in the process by using lacquer or something explosive…

I DID wear a good respirator.

Nicely done, Pete. I’ve been thankful I prefer shellac for a finish more than once this winter. The alcohol is flammable, but at least it works in any temp I can survive in the shop.
