This is the first remodeling project on the home after I got started with woodworking. Took a long time, but the result feels worth the trials and errors. :)

Hickory with Minwax Pecan stain/poly mix. Black Walnut faux pegs in the doors/drawerfronts. And no, the toeskins and crown are still not up. One of these days though.

Beautiful! Nice work!

Great design too. You must have access to a lot of hickory.

Thanks for sharing!

Very nice. There’s something about real wood cabinets that just looks and feels good. It’s a room you can walk into and be home.

Gorgeous kitchen, very pretty. I have an all maple kitchen and love it. I am so tired of those dark kitchens that just make everything look dark and dingy. Nice job, good taste. jokemike

This is my idea for the pecan I have drying right now. Thanks for the visual.
