This week was mostly spent in preparing portions of cabinetry to be delivered and installed on site at the house in Kiawah Island.  I spent a lot of time on creating maple face frame assemblies in order to attach to the front of cabinets in order to hide the raw side of plywood from view.  Most of the time was spent milling down the wood to the specific dimensions needed to match the base frames of the cabinets that were already assembled out of plywood.  Towards the end of the week the face frames were actually assembled using domino joinery and epoxy and then joined together making sure everything is square and flat.
