That's right on my wavelength , stunning =D>

This I guarantee will cause me problems if the good woman sees it.
So if everyone can keep it quiet that'll be doing a brother a solid :-$

Looks spot on craftsmanship. My only niggle is on the design, which I presume was driven by the customer - skirting boards rather than a kick space under the cabinet? That would bug me.

Sometimes driven by the customer sometimes not, I love the skirting board detail, have it in my house as well. Makes not a jot of difference, I have plinth in the sink area and skirt everywhere else and it makes no difference at all, maybe I'm the odd one but I have a good set of flippers on me.

For me the skirting board makes it look a bit more like a piece of furniture rather than a kitchen cabinet. I like it.

Especially around the verticals next to the hob area. The time taken to just follow that vertical around with the skirting is really nice.

Four ovens? Must be a large family.


1 oven
1 steam oven
1 combi /microwave oven
1 coffee machine

not really unusual these days in a large kitchen, often there will be 2 warming drawers as well.

That is absolutely beautiful - fantastic work.

I will be starting to renovate our kitchen at the end of the year, and this design with the shaker doors flush inside the unit, is exactly what my wife (aka the boss) wants.

I was originally thinking about just making the doors and keeping the old standards carcass units to keep costs down and to keep it simple. But seeing your desing with the flush fitting doors, I will be picking my one brain cell to figure out how to do that with the old units. May look rubbish and like I've tried to put lipstick on a gorilla.

If not then I can see me making units as well.

Can I ask you a couple of stupid questions? what type of hinges did you use and what is the specification of the ply or mdf you used for the units and doors?

Sorry if my questions are daft laddy. It's good to know how the professionals do things.

Well done to you. Inspirational work.

Thank you. I use worcester parsons hinges 64mm x 35mm, come in many finishes, I pay between £2 to £10 a hinge dependant on finish, I get big discounts for volume orders. Crazy prices but they are by far and away the best. The doors are either 25mm MR MDF or 27mm poplar, I can't remember what these are. The frames are 27 x 37mm poplar,
