  8. well it seams most is in favor of buying. the kitchen isnt for me if it was I would be building for sure. it is a job I got so I have the flexability of taking the time to build it would be a good prodject I think but mostly I was wondering if there will be any money to make in it for me for building them? and is it worth it money wise.
  9. Just wondering I have the chance to build or buy kitchen cabinets for a job is it worth it to build I mean is it cost effective to build yourself or just buy I do have woodworking skilles I think I could build them and do a great job but is it worth it? 1 of my main pitfalles is I have a small shop and no finish room
  10. I set up a small booth in my garage with tarps and sprayed water base top coat and there was spray everywhere in the air so I think u should cover everthing also I think it is hard to keep the finish from going in the air and back on the already finished stuff.maybe with some type of fan going to keep the finish out of the air will help.
