DIY Cabinet Doors

cabinetdoormainHere is a little project I threw together after I could no longer look at a display of video games, video consoles, remote controls, books, stuff, etc. I took a drive to ReStore, bought a piece of particle board for all of $1.40 and some hinges and knobs for $1.35. Then I visited Home Depot where I purchased a lattice piece for $0.95. I already had a can of white paint at home.Basically, this project barely cost me anything other than my time, energy and patience.

My biggest problem with building anything is cutting a straight piece of wood. It’s not easy to stay straight with a circular saw. I am really eyeing the Kreg Rip-Cut Circular Saw Guide. Ideally, I’d have something as cool as this miter saw. Well, maybe someday. In the meantime, I do what I can. So, if things don’t look perfect, at least you know why.

Perfect or not, it’s fun trying things and there’s definitely the reward of personal accomplishment that comes along with it.cabinetDoorThis was not pretty to look at.cabinetDoor2This piece of wood ended up being 30% off.
