The three raised panels per door looks like it was a ton of work. Definitely stands out to say “Hey, this ain’t Ikea!” :) Fantastic job, very inspiring :)

A huge thanks everyone, Smboudreaux the granite is the only thing I wasn’t able to do myself, everything else including the back splash I did. Nate, I would have to say the doors took the longest. LOL

I really like the raised panel drawer fronts. I am just about to start a similar project (doors/drawers only—no boxes) and might have to do the drawer fronts in this style. How wide is the drawer front frame? Are they just standard raised panel construction?

On the drawers the rails are 1 1/2” the stiles are 2 1/4”

Hope this helped.

Thanks all Mpmitche, cabinets were about a month and the doors were about the same so all together a couple months in between the procrastination and the work week. LOL

Actually Mpmitche I really don’t know how long it took it was a couple years ago since I did these cabinets so you are prob right that it being a fast build, I’m sure it took longer.
