This Kitchen we did this past summer. It has a lot of different woods as well as finish. A portion of the wall cabinets are alder with a rubbed through through painted finish. The Island is out of walnut and has been hand planed and distressed with a dark stained and glazed finish. An then the last wall cabinet is made out of wormy chestnut with heavy hand planing and distress.

Here a re few more pictures and a few close ups. You can click on the pictures to see a full view.

Thanks for looking!

The base cabinet below is an old piece that was purchased, the upper cabinet is the wormy chestnut unit that one of our builders made.

That wormy chestnut upper cabinet is one of the most beautiful pieces I have seen!

We really love the rounded corners on the chestnut cabinet with all the gorgeous molding detail. You do a fabulous job in making the cabinet look antique. Just curious: does the bumped out, tall, alder cabinet hide the refrigerator? There are a lot of beautiful cabinets fit nicely into this small kitchen, (small being a relative term).

Nearly all of our oak is wormy since oak wilt has taken over faster than we can keep up with it. I guess I should try to acquire a taste for the wormy, distressed look instead of spending so much time trying to find good sections of lumber to use :~)!

I don’t think this is a small kitchen :) Although it does look good.
