Default First frameless cabinet job

Just finished installing my first set of melamine frameless cabinets, all cut on a 48" Stinger! Was a learning experience to say the least, I've always done all wood faceframe cabinets. 22' of wall cabinets is a lot to cut on such a small machine but the quality of cuts and accuracy was second to none, thanks to Jim McGrew for helping me find the material and Cabinet Parts Pro for laying them out. Now all I need is a bigger machine (Cobra) and a much better edgebander!

Thanks all, Mick the material is Flakeboard brand, Windsor Mahogany finish.
The good part is there is no sanding and no finish. The Stinger with compression bits give you a smooth cut on top and bottom, that's why I always passed on these jobs before, although I have a melamine blade in the Powermatic 66 tablesaw
without a scoring blade I would get too much tearout on the bottom of the cuts. One of the things I learned is how sharp the cut pieces are when they come off the router. Me and my helper have small cuts on our hands, the edges are razor sharp, you can't even feel it cutting you. Back to work on a painted faceframe kitchen set today but I am making some carved corbels on the Stinger for it and will post some pictures of them when finished.
