Had this small apartment a few years ago. Needed a new kitchen, bud didn’t really want to buy expensive cabinetry and have this fitted to the space available.

It is built using birch ply for the cabinets and drawers, mdf and walnut veneer for the drawer fronts. An old oak coffee table was cut up for the face frame. and the counter top is some of IKEA’s finest walnut veneer counter material.

It is all made using a track saw, a few hand planes and other hand tools.

This project really got me into woodworking (First project besides a few MDF shelves)

I dig it.

If this is your first project then I can’t wait to see what you make in the future.

Looks great!

...im going to go out on a limb here, but I suspect you have made more than a shelf before this!

Well it was my first time trying out cabinetry.

I have remodeled a few apartments and houses in the past, where I have laid flooring, done masonry in bathrooms etc.

But prior to this I had never made a drawer or hung a cabinet door.
