Not insulting at all. The doors are simple shaker style. Very simple. Wife wants this to look like a cottage kitchen (not country….. cottage) so simple, functional, but with an edgey attitude as we’ll be adding some elements that are decidedly contemporary.

The cabinets themselves, though, are simple. No routered edges, no raised panels. And that’s by choice (hers) hehehe. Face frames will be 3/4” soft maple and will be painted, as will the doors. I just think pine or poplar would get dinged up a little too easily and I can get the maple at a reasonable price.

Anyways…. back on topic :) Sliding miter for repeat cuts on sticks. Table saw for panel, dado, ripping…. good?
