Cherry (with maple ply when not visible) kitchen cabinets. I can’t find the pics of the lower cabinets or the island, so I’ll have to take some more. 2005. I was trying to get this done just as our first child arrived. In fact, I think everything was installed, but I didn’t have the doors or the drawer fronts finished when she was born. So the inside of the doors are not well-sanded.
This was my first major use of hand-planes for finishing (I fretted for weeks about all the sanding that would be involved). All the rails and stiles as well as the drawer fronts were prepped with a new Stanley #4. When you turn on the task lights, you can see the mill marks. I love it!
Also, this project facilitated my purchase of Cut List Plus; I laid out everything by hand, and then made ONE mistake that cost me one $110 cheery panel. Software: $89.
