We just had these cabinets built for our living room.
The title of this post is the most common response I hear when people see our new built-in cabinets and find out that I did not build them. Why on earth would a “woodworker” pay someone else to build custom cabinets? Because it made sense, that’s why. I don’t like to build this style of cabinet and it would have taken me a very long time, so I would have been frustrated and annoyed during construction. By farming out the construction and to a custom shop we got just what we wanted and fast.
Before the “pro” showed up we cleared the wall of all obstacles.
Installed in a day. Amazing, from my timeline. At this point I took over (with help). Paying a good painter is expensive and painting didn’t take very long.
This is not my trypical how-to type post. I’m posting this to show that I do not DIY with every home project. I limit myself to the projects I enjoy or the ones that I can not afford to hire out. Maybe since this is finished I can go back to real furniture projects.
