Nice looking cabinets and finish. Are you going to put cork board or panels between the upper and lower cabinets?

Well done. Is the design your own or did you find plans someplace?

I’ve designed and built custom furniture and cabinetry for over 25 years. All my designs are original and I’ve always done my own ordering, drawings, construction, finishing and installation. Over the years I’ve been associated with many quality people in different capacities. On this job in particular I had help from a friend who helped me create my own hardware. Overall the work I will post here is predominately created by me.

No I didn’t panel the walls, the customer papered.

Hah! I did a home office about 10 years ago that would have been a perfect match.
Crown molding on top, toe kick on the bottom, same style raised panel European overlay etc.
Great minds think alike, eh?

Unfortunately, it was one of many early jobs that never got photographed.
