If you’re in Bournemouth then give James a ring at BH Kitchens, Fancy Road. He should be able to supply you with good quality sheet materials (try Hidrofugo Mdf)Ok, I'm ready to start this project now and am in the midst of drawing up the carcasses which against better advice I want to have a go at making myself. I'm pretty sure I'm going to use a quality MFC like Egger - although Im struggling to find a local supplier (Bournemouth) and it would be nice to have it cut to size first.
So I'm looking at other kitchen carcasses for inspiration as I design my own and I'm wondering why all the sides are secured into the edge of the bottom panel rather than sitting on top of it? With all the weight from a heavy worktop coming down these sides, surely it's better to put that load onto the base panel than onto whatever fixing system is used to secure the sides to the base...? Can anyone help me understand why this seems to be the standard method?
Also, what are peoples thoughts on what the carcasses should sit on - Hafele type plastic kick board legs or should I make up a ladder frame to drop the carcasses onto...?
If you mean the curved bits coming up from the floor Roy, i cut them out on the band saw and then dominoed them to the horizontal they are attached to which has a rebate along its back edge and a detail cut along its front edge, both of those done on the router table.Hi Monster, how did you produce those curved pieces coming from the corners, was it a router / template job ?
Yes thats correct, made a little template up first and drew around that on each blank and just free hand cut them out on a little bandsaw, only took a few minutes for each one and then a touch with a bit of sand paper and they came up wellSo you cut each one on the bandsaw and no batch process?
