Cabinet refinish

Project by Jimthecarver posted 12-17-2008 06:42 AM 6182 views 0 times favorited 12 comments Add to Favorites Watch

Some friends ask if I could do somthing with the old cabinets in thier kitchen. They didnt want to rip everything out and start over.
So I built new doors and drawers annd drawer fronts, then sanded and refinished the casework.
I didnt get before pics this time because they had already removed the doors and had started striping the cabinets. Then realized it was a bit more of a job than they wanted to attempt.
All in all I think it came out alright.
Thanks for looking.

Outstanding job, Jim. I think that’s the only way to go with old cabinets. Looks like a brand new kitchen.

Great looking kitchen Jim. Just curious, why did they go with the high gloss finish on the cabinets? Most around here I have seen are satin finish.

The owner said “I want it glossy! as high of a shine as I could get”. So I gave them 6 coats of High build poly gloss.
I myself like satin also on casework.
Thank you all for the comments, its much appreciated.

I’m a satin kind of person I don’t like the plastic look. Nice job on the build. Actually the hi shine looks good in that situation.
