Gave a shot at using Maple with a water based GF dark cherry stain. Definitely not easy when you mix with water and maple, but got through it. The key is sanding and sealer and spraying the stain to give you time to get it uniform! Cabinets cases and shelves are made out of 3/4 Maple Plywood with the doors, shelf face frames, and a two piece crown in solid maple. A piece of granite topped the lower cases as well as a lower more ergonomic desk height, and some custom LED lighting turned out to be a good final touch. I used General Finishes polyacrylic Semi gloss and their water based dark cherry stain all sprayed with my HVLP. Cant imagine life without that thing!

Outstanding work.

Those cabinets looks great.

what’s the profile bit for the door? Are those plywood (besides the frame)?
If they are plywood how did you manage to get such crisp profile?

Thanks for posting.

Thanks lanwater…. no the door is a solid wood panel, as well as the solid rails and stiles, I joined between 3 and 4 pieces of maple to build up the panel. I then used a Whitesides 6000F raised panel bit on the router table. The rail and stile bit set is a MLCS #8873.

Thanks again Jason
