« Part 1: Lower shells complete. Part 2 of Kitchen Cabinets series Part 3: Uh... I'm done? »

Sorry it’s been so long since I’ve had any updates. I’ve been very busy. The cabs have been installed minus doors and drawer fronts. Toe kick and drawers are in, so the kitchen is now usable. Here’s a few picks of the some of the upper doors before finish. I’m actually in the process of finishing the doors as I type. Maybe in a week or so I can post some pics of the cabs on the down hill side.

Is that hickory with maple or birch? I didn’t see any species mentioned in all 3 parts of the kitchen blog except for the butcher block cart…

It is all maple. Not sure what kind, but as you can see it’s not your typical white, super clean looking stuff you see in store.

I’m in Upstate NY and maple & cherry are the most common woods used but I never see rustic maple anywhere up here—everything is priced out as “Clear” or Select & Better.” Only at a hardwood lumberyard in MI did I finally see the term, “Unselected” [for color], meaning you get white sapwood and/or brown heartwood, sometimes on the same board. I like the look of hickory but would rather have it in maple that’s not as hard on bits & blades.

What finish did you end up using? Was it a stain or dye or lac?
