Just finished this one today. It’s all maple and is stained belgian chocolate. These went into a newly built house which isn’t sold yet. Laminate countertops, soft close drawers and doors, raised eating area on island along with two bathrooms.

Love the look ! What kind of “Belgian Chocolate” stain did you use? I have some leftover maple I want
to use for a Box Project and would love this color.
Excellent Work

Love the finish, but boy real granite would have really set that off. Oh well, what can you do.

Thanks guys. Granite would have been really nice on these but around here it would have probably been at least $10,000 for granite for the kitchen and bathrooms. A little more than they are willing to spend, lol. The stain is a spray stain by chemcraft.

Great work.
The kitchen looks fantastic.
My kitchen is identical in color and look. I have the same shaker style fronts.
How did you stain the kitchen cupborads and drawers?
I just finished 3 Pot and Pan drawers for my kitchen and was unimpressed with the finish.
I used maple (against my better judgement) beacause the rest of the kitchen is maple.
Thanks for sharing your work.

Beautiful kitchen, I prefer the taste of good old fashioned milk chocolate over Beligan chocolate but it looks great. LOL

Very nice. Very organic colors. Shame about the laminate but it doesn’t detract from the beauty of the cabinetry.

You guys really don’t like laminate countertops, lol.

WOODZY: The stain was applied with an hvlp sprayer. This is only my second set of cabinets that I have stained myself. They turned out pretty good but not perfect. I have to get my gun dialed in a bit better and practise some more.

Thanks. I thought so.
I have a sprayer but decided against using it for the first time.
Again great cabinets. Can’t wait to achieve these kind of results.
