This kitchen is made of Poplar with a painted and glazed finish. It has UV Maple interiors in the base cabinets and painted interiors in the upper cabinets. Hard maple dovetailed drawer box’s with a clear finish and blumotion soft close undermount drawer slides.

The curved doors in this kitchen are the doors that I did my curved door blog on.

Thanks for checking this one out! It was a fun Project.

Les, this is a gorgeous kitchen. Normally I do not particularly like to see wood painted. (But I seem to remember a posted walnut project with a white paint that was an exception, however LOL).. But you make this build look so good that I could easily become a convert. You executed a nice design and layout as well. I really like the coffered ceiling as well. This is truly a kitchen that would be a compliment to any home.

Well done.

Thos said it all…......another unbelieveable project. And Thanks again Les for the excellent blog on curved doors. I am building the last of about 8 -10 curved front bath and butlers pantry cabinets for that house in Charlotte, NC. We have all but 2 installed and waiting on the granite and marble tops to be installed on them. Then I hope to get pictures of them all and post for everyone to see. Lots and lots of detail work going in on all cabinets.

A BEAUTIFUL kitchen. I’m curious about the kind of paint you used on the cabinets, and how it was applied. I’m in the process of building my kitchen cabinets. I know where to turn if I have questions. Great job.

I’ve never seen a better crafted kitchen. That warming oven is a briliant touch. The curves, color, inset doors, light rail on the bases…maybe I’ll post this kitchen on my web site and tell folks this is the type of work I want to do!
