Large cubby project - paint or assemble cabinets first?

I just finished my first project and found that painting the cabinets was very time consuming - especially so since I used oil base paint which takes forever to dry.

For my next project, I'm considering painting all of my pieces first once cut.

Good idea?

Thanks,
Jeff

It seems that you really

It seems that you really enjoyed painting the cabinets, but one thing which I would like to share with you is that don't try to paint pieces first when you cut it. As after assembling it, the parts where you will nail it becomes patchy and will not look good.

To Paint or Not To Paint Before Assembly

Hi Jeff,

I have tried both painting before and after building, and yes, always after cutting. The method that has worked the best for me is cut, sand (120 grit), prime, fine sand (180 grit), build, paint. Sounds like a lot of steps, but it works great for me every time! Hope this helps!
