Stepdaughter and husband bought their first house. The kitchen cabinets were falling apart and of course money was tight. I built these for about $800. They already had the counter top.

Looks like you did a fine job, on a tight budget.

Great job Dad. Nothing more rewarding then helping out your family and friends.

You did a great job. Nice door detail. I hope you bought a saw blade to do this as a thank you, or maybe a router bit. that seems greedy but you deserve some pay other than the pride of your work.

That’s the best way to do it. It is also some of the most satisfying work. Beautiful job!

Its a nice bright look with a good contrast to the counter tops.

Can you post a close up of the drawers,it looks like some interesting detail.
What did you use on the drawer fronts and cabinet doors?

Sorry, that’s the only pictures I took. Doors and drawers are 1×3” frames with 1/4”plywood inserts and 3/4” half round molding on the doors and a 3/8”thick piece w/edges rounded off for the drawers. As mentioned the countertop is just a cheap piece which they already had.
