This kitchen was a-lot of work but well worth it. The cabinets were made from Alder we Choose to paint and glaze the side cabinets and stain the island and stove area the carvings and turnings were all hand made in the shop. We had a great time doing this one. Thanks for the support, the boxes were made from 1/2” baltic birch then wrapped with the raised panels/turnings, the drawers are 5/8” Hard maple with blind dovetails, we used full extention undermount glides w/ blumotion (soft close feature) the doors were hinged with 2 1/2 solid brass ball tip (von morris) the island was made from solid Alder. The finishes used were (stain) van dyke brown,varnish,then wax. (paint) van dyke brown stain then cream varnish,glaze then wax the finishers get the glory they did a fantastic job!!

Wow! I love everything about this kitchen. The cabinets, arched ceiling, and large crown overhangs. Nice work!
