Before I found out that I had cancer I started building my own kitchen cabinets. After a year or so layoff I’m back at it. Close to wrapping up. I have added a few shots of different areas that have been finished. The center is my island. We love this feature. Have much room below and good storage for trash and recycling. The desk is some scrap wood that I had laying around. Need to cut a hole for my power cord. I will do that later. The last feature I have completed so far is the pull out spice rack compartment. I had a narrow space under my cross beam. This worked out well. To finish the cabinets, I have about 5 more wall units and some trim work to do. That will come along as I can afford it.

Nice work. It’s always nice to build custom, that way you can utilize every sq. in.

That looks beautiful. Someday I will have to tackle cabinet work like this as I have kept to furniture so far. I used the same wainscoting or beadboard in our master bath and love it. Again nice work.

I really like that island. Nice Work.
did you use real tongue and groove pieces in your doors or is it apanel look alike ? (The effect looks great.)
good to hear you are feeling well enough to get back at it !

Yes I used the tongue and grove method for the doors then slid the bead board in then secured the end of frame. Used many Kreg screws on building the island frame work. I was very pleased with that.

I really like this look. Very nice. I like the white. Very bright and clean looking. Can you tell us more about the finish. Was it sprayed or brushed or rolled, etc.
