It was a project that seemed to have no end. But it did. These cabs are finally fully assembled and installed.

The cases are made of 3/4 maple (prolly plz believe china) plywood and the doors are also maple ply framed with 2” leopard wood. The drawers and drawer faces are made of solid maple, with the drawers getting hardwood dowel pins/rabbet joints and the faces getting a 1/2 inch leopard wood in line with the stainless steel hardware. All of the internal hardware is “euro” style. The top cabinets run all the way to the ceiling to maximize space in a smaller kitchen in a 1930’s built house.

I prefer the flat faced doors for kitchen and bath applications for the ease of keeping clean.

The finish was 3 coats of zinsser seal coat followed by 3 more coats of acrylic polyurethane sanded to 2000 grit for a nice kitchen shine.

Thanks for looking,
Justin

Harold, thanks, but I’m all applianced up and the kitchen redo is done, minus some trim and touch up paint.

Deke, leopard wood and lace wood are similar. However leopard wood is much more dense and has a darker, redder tone, so when I open the 3’ 6” upper cabinet doors it’s kind of like swinging the front door. Heavy.

And just like lace wood, it’s slivers ville. Living in a trendy Seattle neighborhood I came up with a modern / commercial design for the kitchen knowing that I’ll be selling in the somewhat near future. Gotta get a bigger shop.

thanks all.
