These are some old photos I dug up of my first “high end” kitchen. Its a clear cherry flat panel kitchen. Everything is book matched if you take a look at the base cabinet close up you can see the entire door / drawer setup is one solid piece of cherry. This was a difficult kitchen to renovate because the customer was occupying the home and had 4 children living their as well. I had to install everything in a 2 day period and as you can see even still I was working around their kitchen items hehe.
Now for the funny part. This being my first large scale project I had no shop tools. I built this kitchen and installed it with the following.
Bosch Circular saw w/ home made straight edge
Porter Cable router
Porter Cable random orbit sander
air gun for the finish
It was an extremely hard project to do in this fashion but it was an experience I will forever cherish. It gives you an immense appreciation for the shop tools that make it so much easier / faster.
