This is my first big project. I am not all done yet, but it is coming along. Used quartersawn oak and qs oak ply. Was my first time dealing with drawer slides, and inserting glass.

Great job. I like the tiger stripes on the panels.

That’s a nice looking kitchen. Your choice of hardware is a good complement to the wood and glass. Great work.

Very nice looking kitchen. You did a great job on it. Is there any pictures of the finished kitchen? I love quatersawn oak and want to do my new kitchen in it. Need to get the new shop done first.

God Bless

Hate to admit it, but no, still not finished. Work just takes too much time away from the important thing, woodworking! Have the rest of the cabinets about done, just have a few more to do, then spray and hang. Will post when finshed. I want to replace a couple of the wooden doors, as since I was a beginner, I didn’t realize that you could buy quartersawn for the center panels. (They are that “core plywood”, I don’t remember what they are called, had the uppers done before I discovered it for the lower ones, so will remake the upper doors! Every project has been a learning curve for me, this one is no exception! I really am glad I used the adjustable legs instead of a solid wood traditional base, as my old house has lots of dips to deal with. The other thing I love is those little doodads that soft close the doors. They are kinda spendy, but what a blessing it is not to listen to banging cupboards! I’m going to buy those things in bulk and put them on every cupboard I own, ha ha. Thanks for the compliments, I share your love for QS oak, as I have an old house that I like to keep looking “old”. Be sure to post your new shop!

Nothing better than the look of quarter sawn cabinetry.

Looks real good!
