After I returned home from Iraq my wife decided that she wanted to remodel the kitchen. So me and my infinite wisdom said ok, so I sent her on a vacation to St. Crioux and i commenced to ripping out the old kitchen, and I do mean ripping it apart al the way to the bare studs and floor joists. Well long after her return from her wonderful island vacation (which I still havent heard the end of) I finally have the kitchen complete, minus the wine cabinet on the end. The construction was basic cabinet grade plywood cases with face frame and raised panel doors. The face frames are walnut, the doors are walnut burl with cherry frames, drawers are dovetailed curly maple boxes and a walnut and cherry face. Cabinets are finished with sprayed satin laquer.

Terry, you did a really good job on the cabinets. Walnut and cherry make a good combination and both woods have their own natural warmth and color that do not need any “improvement” as Mother Nature does a fine job in her own right. These are beautiful. The raised panels add a nice detail to the cabinetry as well.

Nice job.

The wood grain is beautiful! The grain is so interesting, it takes your eye hostage!
The finish look nice and smooth too! Nice Job!

WOW, must’ve had a pile of leave built up to pull off this remodel. I’d have been on it for a year plus.
Good looking work.

Devildog I have the feeling you are going to be eating some really good meals in that kitchen prepared by a very grateful wife. Love the walnut, don’t see as much of it as I would like to. Feel like doing a kitchen remodel in Norway?
