Well, this is our last kitchen. It’s rustic Cherry and it was the coolest job I’ve done so far. You know those people that you just love to work for, well that’s Deb. She wanted all the cool stuff so we got it for her. Tandem slides, wood lazy susans, soft close hinges, everything I could think of.
I can’t wait to take some pictures of when the counter top goes on.
We used a valspar lacquer without stain to bring out the wood. As with any cherry this will darken up quite a bit over time.

We didn’t stain it and just use a pre-cat laquer on it. It’s a very dull finish so you probably can’t see it’s there. That’s what the customer wanted so that it would match a lot of her other furniture.

Hey Dustin, another outstanding kitchen, I hope you’re charging more these days. I really like using that pre-cat lacquer too, just don’t like the hazards, but that’s why they make respirators and tyvek suits. Keep up the great work buddy.

How’s the workshop coming along, broke ground yet?

I think it’s going to be a while until I can get into a real shop unfortunately. I have to take a break from cabinet making to do some tech school with the military. I’ll resume my cabinet work in February. Sucks sooooo bad!
So what’s a tyvek suit? Do I need to use one to spray lacquer?

Can’t let my wife see me looking at this or I’ll have another project added to my list.

You know it really wasn’t that difficult either. Doors are reversed raised and drawer fronts are the same. It only took about a month to do.
