Yes it is finished and I have my shop back, but just for a short while. Monday my cabinet shop goes into full swing. I've held back while I built my house but the time has come to catch up with some bills.

That is a very nice kitchen. I am getting ready to start mine this summer. Looks like we are adding cabinets and cutting a wall in half to make a breakfast bar.

Very nice Dennis, I bet your wife is happy.
Those cabinets will last forever.
It would be nice to see a larger image. I resize my images, upload to 480 wide, & they fit perfect on LJ.

480? I go for 500 – do those hang over the right edge for anyone? I used to do 400

and now before I hijack this thread, Nice kitchen!

Hi Dennis;
—-great looking cabinets there! I also visited your website again and saw the ‘meditation’ area where you have placed the ‘cabinet with a strong Asian influence’,—-great piece of ‘wood art’ there!

And then what a great piece you have there with the influence of ‘rustic’ that you have so successfully brought out in that “hutch’!

Great work!
Thank you!
