Things are moving along nicely at the latest kitchen project. Got most of the stuff back from the painter today except doors and a few fillers. Going to concentrate on this islands base wrap this afternoon. Then off to the Prince Edward Island Instagram meet up this evening. #builtincabinets #princeedwardisland #cabinetinspiration #crownmoulding #homesweethome #painting #waterbasedlacquer #specialist #cabinetdesign #cabinetideas #stayonbudget #smallbusiness #kitchenremodel #moderncraftsman #finishcarpenter #finishcarpentry #builtin #builtins #customcabinets #carpenter #carpentry #builttolast #worksmartnothard #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #organization #leanbuilding #lovewhatido
Here we go. Started the install of this kitchen today. Set my bases with my dewalt laser. (Need to upgrade to the green laser dewalt) I could barely see the red laser with how bright the space was. Picking up the gable package and fronts tomorrow morning. Hoping to see a bi change in this space tomorrow. #builtincabinets #princeedwardisland #cabinetinspiration #crownmoulding #homesweethome #painting #waterbasedlacquer #specialist #cabinetdesign #cabinetideas #stayonbudget #smallbusiness #kitchenremodel #moderncraftsman #finishcarpenter #finishcarpentry #builtin #builtins #customcabinets #carpenter #carpentry #builttolast #worksmartnothard #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #organization #leanbuilding #lovewhatido #kitcheninstall
I've posted about this jig before but wanted to give a shoutout to the manufacturer @truepositiontools During my move from Calgary to PEI I lost a critical piece. I made a replacement piece out of MDF but as you can imagine it was less then accurate and only a temporary fix to get me through. I saw someone on here tag @truepositiontools on one of there posts and contacted them to see if I could get a replacement piece. They said they would sell me the T-square and guide together because each one is matched together for perfect accuracy. It arrived yesterday just in time for the next kitchen. In my opinion there is no jig on the market that comes close to being as good as this one for cabinet hardware installation. #builtincabinets #princeedwardisland #cabinetinspiration #crownmoulding #homesweethome #painting #waterbasedlacquer #specialist #cabinetdesign #cabinetideas #stayonbudget #smallbusiness #kitchenremodel #moderncraftsman #finishcarpenter #finishcarpentry #builtin #builtins #customcabinets #carpenter #carpentry #builttolast #worksmartnothard #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #organization #leanbuilding #lovewhatido #toolsofthetrade
Getting the final bits and pieces together before the install next week. I had to leave the pantry cabinet till last because it takes up so much space. Talked to the paint shop this morning and they are on track to get everything back to me on Tuesday. Hoping for a super productive afternoon. #builtincabinets #princeedwardisland #cabinetinspiration #crownmoulding #homesweethome #painting #waterbasedlacquer #specialist #cabinetdesign #cabinetideas #stayonbudget #smallbusiness #kitchenremodel #moderncraftsman #finishcarpenter #finishcarpentry #builtin #builtins #customcabinets #carpenter #carpentry #builttolast #worksmartnothard #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #organization #leanbuilding #lovewhatido
Martin's podcast was the first I had ever listened too and I've been hooked ever since. Now to be a guest is a complete honor and I can't believe it happened. It was something that was out of my comfort zone. I didn't want to pass up the opportunity and I'm so happy I didn't. I want to thank @martinholsinger it was so awesome!!!! #builtincabinets #princeedwardisland #cabinetinspiration #crownmoulding #homesweethome #painting #waterbasedlacquer #specialist #cabinetdesign #cabinetideas #stayonbudget #smallbusiness #kitchenremodel #moderncraftsman #finishcarpenter #finishcarpentry #builtin #builtins #customcabinets #carpenter #carpentry #builttolast #worksmartnothard #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #organization #leanbuilding #lovewhatido
This is how I like to build cabinets. I bring everything out 7/8's past the cabinet box depth so it all ends up flush with the door/drawer fronts. Kinda gives the look of inset face frame without the frame. I don't like seeing the edge of the fronts and the gap between them and the cabinet. #builtincabinets #princeedwardisland #cabinetinspiration #crownmoulding #homesweethome #painting #waterbasedlacquer #specialist #cabinetdesign #cabinetideas #stayonbudget #smallbusiness #kitchenremodel #moderncraftsman #finishcarpenter #finishcarpentry #builtin #builtins #customcabinets #carpenter #carpentry #builttolast #worksmartnothard #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #organization #leanbuilding #lovewhatido #kitchendetails
Looking through my photos I came across this one and it means a lot. It had been about a year and a half where I didn't build a single cabinet after moving from Calgary to PEI. Let me tell you.... building this kitchen ignited the fire in me once again. When you find that one thing you love to do for a living you need to fight for it and never let it go. I hope to be a Cabinet Maker till I'm good and old. I also hope to strive to be better everyday. Have a great weekend everyone. Remember to enjoy some family time!!! #builtincabinets #princeedwardisland #cabinetinspiration #crownmoulding #homesweethome #painting #waterbasedlacquer #specialist #cabinetdesign #cabinetideas #stayonbudget #smallbusiness #kitchenremodel #moderncraftsman #finishcarpenter #finishcarpentry #builtin #builtins #customcabinets #carpenter #carpentry #builttolast #worksmartnothard #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #organization #leanbuilding #lovewhatido
I've never used these adjustable legs before but the small side job I have on the go saved these after their basement got flooded and ruined their existing entertainment center. They also were able to save the cabinet doors so I will reuse them as well. If these work really well I may switch over to using them full time. Would really like to hear people's thoughts on these. Let me hear the good and bad!!! #builtincabinets #princeedwardisland #cabinetinspiration #crownmoulding #homesweethome #painting #waterbasedlacquer #specialist #cabinetdesign #cabinetideas #stayonbudget #smallbusiness #kitchenremodel #moderncraftsman #finishcarpenter #finishcarpentry #builtin #builtins #customcabinets #carpenter #carpentry #builttolast #worksmartnothard #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #organization #leanbuilding #lovewhatido
I was able to rip, crosscut and label 17 sheets in a little under 7 hours today. All on my portable Bosch 4100 table saw. Goal for 2018 is a bigger shop space and ship in my Felder k700s and edge bander. Until then I will deal with it with a big smile on my face. #builtincabinets #princeedwardisland #cabinetinspiration #crownmoulding #homesweethome #painting #Waterbasedlacquer #specialist #cabinetdesign #cabinetideas #stayonbudget #smallbusiness #kitchenremodel #moderncraftsman #finishcarpenter #finishcarpentry #builtin #builtins #customcabinets #carpenter #carpentry #builttolast #worksmartnothard #finehomebuilding #keepcraftalive #organization #leanbuilding #lovewhatido
