All, I wanted to share some photos of a cabinet refacing I did to our kitchen along with new custom built doors and drawers I made. I am using maple veneer for refacing and hard maple 3/4 for the styles and rails with 1/2 plywood inserts for the doors. The finish is General Finishes high performance semi-gloss water based topcoat, I sprayed these using a HVLP sprayer, 3 coats. This is my fist time doing this type of job.

The doors are a little bit boring with just a flat panel. But overall it’s looks nice I like it.
I’m curious how did you glue the veneer on.
The wood looks like maple a very nice grade too.

Aj, We decided on this style door as opposed to raised panels due to it simplicity, its what my wife liked. The veneer is 3M peal and stick, it works very well and I’m very happy with it. The wood is hard maple cabinet grade.

Turned out nice. I have used quite a bit of that 3 M peel and stick veneer. IMHO it’s good stuff for cabinets.
