Hello to all of you…
This is a gift for my son, ( still a secret ) I bought the plan from Woodcraft, but I had to downsize it a bit since it’s going to a smal kitchen.
The top 20in X 24in is the usual trinity maple wallnut and cherry, the rest is mainly tiger maple ,white maple and some wallnut for the drawer and the small plugs accent.
All the hardware came from Lee Valley, and it’s finished with few coats of tung oil.
I did use some ideas from some of you guys,( thank you ) I added a spice rack made of cherry and walnut, the rest will serve as a utensils compartment
It was a nice but challenging project all I had to do was to follow instruction. Thanks for watching and feel free to comment, that’s how I will get better.
