Here we removed the doors/drawer fronts, stapled/glued whole pieces of 1/8” luan to the faces and routed out openings, then applied a maple verneer to cabinets and inside edge of door and drawer openings . After the cabinets were ready to be finished, we ripped/routed/sanded pieces that were screwed into the ceiling joist and the cabinet’s skeleton at 90 degrees, then the maple crown molding was nailed to that. Looks pretty nice, but I regret letting anyone else finish our work. We would have done a much better job, but the customer insisted his guy do it. We later installed the finished doors and drawer fronts and found the finish not up to our standards. Our standards are very, very high, and it is painful to see a stranger make it look any less than perfect. The customers are happy and that’s what counts I guess.

Nothing beats wood in the kitchen. I understand what you mean though about someone else messing with your creation. It hurts but it is going to happen. All you can do is move on. Nice job.

Awesome job. I like the look, the shade of finish, etc. Makes such a big difference. The kitchen looks gorgeous now. What’s really cute is that you made this beautiful kitchen and they are eatting take out pizza. lol

I don’t understand what you meant by adding plywood and then the veneer. Do you have pics of that process?
