shaker door supplier

Post by promhandicam » Sun Apr 21, 2019 5:36 pm

Any suggestions for a supplier of custom shaker doors? I was planning on using cutwrights for an upcoming job however they only do doors with a 90mm rail and stile and the customer wants 70 or 75mm. There are going to be around 40 doors / drawer fronts and ideally they will come primed.

Thanks

These days I do nothing but make MDF shaker doors.

I can make them any thickness, usually 18 or 22 mm. Rails and stiles can be any size you want.

Only thing I can't do is priming.

Cheers

Steve,

If you use the 'Bobby' method, and you have enough clamps I'm guessing there is no wood welder available, you'll have those doors made in no time (assuming you have stock ready to go )I've just done a kitchen with 38 doors and made them myself, and then another couple of days for boshing through a sander priming etc, I looked at having them made but it paid me to do it.

Or do what Jason said!

Sadly the images have gone - maybe Bobby could repost. Or I will take some photos of my copy of what Bob made.

Thanks Steve,

I'm now intrigued, some photos from someone would be great!

At the moment I do mine with the a cope and stick cutter in the Felder router spindle....it does take some setting up, but is nice having the power feeder do all the hard work.

PS. How's the finger now?
