nice job Mailee, do you ever get some free time for yourself? Silly question but what exactly is clear 2 pack? I take it is some spray finish? Well done

cheers Ian

Thanks guys. Ian, I dont get a lot of time for myself but tonight I have just been out for a ride on my friends bike to unwind a bit and it was nice. The finish I mention is indeed a spray finish. it is Morrells AC lacquer. i use a sealer coat first and then a clear over it.

Well Dave these are to match some chipboard crap that are mounted on the opposite wall, i think they will outlast them though. LOL.

I have almost finished the kitchen cabinets. I am waiting for some maple to make the cornice and plinth for them, and a couple of sets of hinges. Here are a couple of shots of them.

I finally got the kitchen cabinets fitted after waiting an age for the maple to make the mouldings! :roll:
Excuse the poor photos as I forgot my camera and took these with my phone. Mind you it does show the cabinets in their true colours which match the originals on the opposite wall. :D

Mailee how did you finish the edges of the walnut faced MDF with hard wood or iron on strip would be interested to see close up if possible

Regards

Sorry David, bit late for a close up. They were iron on edging strips on this one. I usually use solid wood but used the edging for speed on this job.
