Been working on my kitchen for about 8 years now, and am finally about 98% finished. just need to add the soffits and crown molding.
All the cabinets are 3/4” birch plywood. Doors are flame birch veneer on MDF with 1/8” birch edges. Finish is aniline dye and water based polyurethane.
I didn’t take any pics, but there are 23 dovetailed drawers made with a router table and Incra fence. Most of the drawers were made from recycled 3/4” solid tongue and groove birch wall paneling.
Backsplash is brushed aluminum laminate on 1/2” MDF, glued up like a checkerboard. The aluminum was 30” x 30” scraps I’ve had for about 10 years. Glued them up, cut into 4” strips with alternating grain directions, cut again into 4” strips, and glue back together. There’s a biscuit at every joint, every 4”.
It’s taken so long, I’ve already replaced the tile floor I did right before I started.
