Painted Beadboard Kitchen Cabinets (scroll down to view project)
Shown here in my shop is a set of paint grade beadboard kitchen cabinets with an integrated end panel.These were built for a local contractor who will install and paint them onsite.
One feature that is often overlooked by clients is the construction technique and materials used in building the cabinets. All of my cabinets use 3/4" cabinet grade plywood sides and bottoms, and 1/2" backs. The face frames are solid wood glued on (instead of nailed or stapled). The doors are solid poplar with MDF beadboard panels and high quality European hinges which allow doors to be fully adjusted and removed without tools.
Next time you are at a big box store or looking at mass produced cabinets check out the 1/2" particle board sides, flimsy 1/4" back and low-cost hinges they use.
