Here is some of the woodwork in my kitchen, built in 1980.
The cabinets and trim are Pine ( Yes Jim, I use pine in my house. I save the special exotics for jigs—Go figure)
The ceiling is tounge and groove Ash that I made. The beams are some Oak left over from jobs. I used narrow strips and glued them up.
The band on the Plastic Laminate counter top is Maple. The curved piece is a bunch of very thin pieces
laminated. They had to be thin to bend to that tight radius. Inlaid with Mahogony.
Vent Hood is Copper trimed with Pine.

Kent, you must be a finishing genius. That is hands down the most beautiful pine kitchen I have ever seen. Those cabinets just reek of quality workmanship.

Only half in the bag now Charlie.
This is almost as nice as your jigs Kent. Nicely executed and the overall look is fantastic.. especially like the small additions to the top moulding of the overhead cupboards.

I’ve never been a big fan of Pine, (untill now!) Great looking kitchen and I agree with Stefang, you must be a finishing genius. I never saw Pine look that impressive. I really like the detail in your Crown molding and I’m curious about the doors in picture # 4. Great looking Kitchen!!!!

Hey Kent, great job and if you want to see “Pine Shine” try Rosweood Stain and Tung Oil finish…amazing.

Picture #4 is a set of French Doors that open to the back patio. What you see are shutter type bifold doors with lattice that I made. The doors are basically cabinet doors as far as the contruction is concerned.

Thanks, guys, for all the nice comments.
