These are some of the Cabinets my Father and I make. 3/4” Oak stained Red Mahogany. My Mother did the glass work. We make everything including the Crown Molding. I feel blessed I get to make beautiful stuff with people I care about. We use oak plywood for the sides and Solid oak for frames and doors. We use a mill to drill the holes for hidden hinges. All drawers are 11/16” dovetailed hard maple with Oak fronts.

This is a beautiful build, very nice craftsmanship. How did you make the crown molding?, with a router/shaper, or by hand with planes? This a consignment or your own? It looks like many – many man hours.
Thanks for showing.

We use shapers to build the Crown molding. These here are my parents at the house, it takes us about 3 weeks of 4hr a night work to complete a whole kitchen.

You are, indeed, blessed to be able to build such lovely cabinets and work with your parents. Your mother’s glass work really enhances the cabinets. You’re a great team!

Thanks for sharing.
