This was the next project for my mother in Law. I have more pics I will post in the next project, they will be close ups with more of the detail finishing work. these are just before and afters. I used 3/4” birch for all cabinets with poplar for door stiles and rails with 1/4” birch for door panels. I appreciate any and all comments, thanks

That’s probably one of the most dramatic before-and-after looks I’ve ever seen. Great job!
