I am installing a stainless steel work sink. I researched as much as I could. Are these the parts and materials I need for this install? I have FlowGuard Gold, which is CPVC I believe. I believe the drain pipe is 1 1/2".

2 Keeney Brass 1/2-in FIP x 3/8-in Compression Quarter Turn Angle Valve
2 Charlotte Pipe CPVC Adapter
1 Christy's PVC Pipe Cement and Primer 8-fl oz PVC Cement and Primer
1 Oatey 0.6-in x 43-ft Plumber's Tape
1 Keeney 1-1/2-in Plastic Sink Trap J-Bend
1 Keeney Brass 1/2-in FIP x 3/8-in Compression Quarter Turn Angle Valve
1 IRWIN 1.5-in Multipurpose Pipe Cutter
1 Christy's PVC Pipe Cement and Primer 8-fl oz PVC Cement and Primer

1. Turn off water
2. turn on faucets to drain water
3. cut existing pipe
4. apply primer then apply glue and install adapters

This look like a solid plan to you guys? Anything I am missing?

You seem to be better organised than most plumbers.
Very good.
In your first photo, I'm guessing that the smaller pipes are your plastic hot and cold pipes.
The UK equivalent is something like Speedfit and comes in 15-mm and 22-mm OD sizes.
I can't see how you are going to fit your Keeney elbows. They look like (UK) wall or plate elbows.
I would put an elbow on the pipes close to the wall and put the Keeney close to it.
You won't be able to do the arrangement in your last image unless you dig out some space behind it.
Your image has the pipes going into the back of the elbow.
Some tips on the 1 1/2" waste.
I like to cut it square with a mitre saw. Clean the cut edge and sand a bit of a chamfer on it.
Make up your waste pipework dry (don't glue first).
Sometimes I don't glue the finished waste, but use a wrap of gas grade PTFE tape. Never failed.
Make sure you get the right type of pipe. Some waste pipe is push fit sized which is different to solvent welded size.
You need to be extra careful with the water pipes.
Cut square, don't use a hacksaw. A bladed Rothenberger pipe cutter is best.
You may need to use pipe inserts as well.
You can use plastic pushfit fiittings, but follow the instructions.
You can use brass compression fittings. An insert is a must.
Put the fitting nut and olive/ferrule on the pipe before you fit the insert.
