Though I am most interested in building furniture, my history is that of building permanent residential / house related things. My wife insisted that I finally build a kitchen in our basement so that when our kids visit they’ll have a place to warm baby bottles and make a cup of tea or coffee. So, in honor of our little granddaughter, affectionately know to us as Peanut, here is the kitchen she shares with her new little sister.
All cabinetry is built of hard maple, walnut and walnut ply. No stain was used with the exception of the bar top. Counter and bar top surfaces were coated primarily with 13 coats of General Finishes High Performance Satin top coat, and buffed with a solution of water and soap using Abralon Sanding Pads.

You’ve got an adorable grandbaby! :) I’m sure your kids will appreciate and get a lot of use out of this lovely kitchen for many, many years, not just for baby bottles. Our mostly finished basement has an area where I’d like to put a kitchen in future. Right now, there’s a washer sitting there, so it’s plumbed already. I plan on moving the washer back to it’s original location (there are two water heaters and I get the impression that they wanted to use the electric water heater for the washer rather than the boiler). It would be an awesome place for a second kitchen… mostly for snacks and teen use, but I’d love a spare oven in there for holiday baking as I have no room in the main kitchen.

Beautiful job on the kitchen! The maple has great figure and the colors all work so well together. Peanut should be very proud of her Grandpa!

Mike – I’m pretty proud of little Peanut for sure – and of her sister, Peanut II. I’ll bet they’d enjoy a pasty or two.

Noel,
I haven’t learned how to may Pasties yet! I’m still teaching all these Finns about Southern food!
