You always want to give yourself a little lap or room for error when putting together custom cabinets encase you make a mistake and need to take a little off. Not only that if your custom cabinets touch the clamps a lot of time that glue and the oak of the custom cabinets will mix against the clamp to turn it black. That is one special reason you want to put a piece of wood as a barrier in front of the clamp. That’s when you go ahead and start gluing pieces of the custom cabinets together. You don’t want to apply too much glue but enough to seal it across the custom cabinets. So we are going to want to start in the middle of your custom cabinets while going through with the steps of gluing it all together and work your way out. First scale it out to the rest of the custom cabinets then just go ahead and snug it up lightly that way we can position the ends of the custom cabinets. So what I am doing next is I am applying veneer tape to the custom cabinets. Specially these panel sides of the custom cabinets. These are the oak veneer panels and this is a strip of oak veneer with some hot melt glue behind it as it brings together the custom cabinets. The iron warms the glue and that’s when it begins to stick down and hold the custom cabinets together as one whole piece. This type of wide-open custom cabinets adds brightness to the entire area. This kitchen is made with a white paint base and with the color combined with the natural sunlight the wood is complemented very well. The cabinet maker spent three days at the customer's house because it was custom work. This open floor plan allows the kitchen to connect with the living room as one to create open space.
