Just finished this one today. All the cabinets were actually built over a year ago for this house but when it came time to put them in the house was not ready. One year later and they were actually ready for me to install them. All hickory kitchen with classic maple cabinet boxes, dovetailed birch ply drawer boxes, soft close drawers and doors, pantry with pullouts, soft close garbage/recycle bin, and formica 180fx countertops. The kitchen alone has 22 drawers plus another 12 in the three bathrooms. The bathroom cabinets are in a seperate project post.

Really nice, lots of drawers. I like the color variation in the hickory. Well done.

You did a wonderful job. Must be nice to have all that storage space. I am sure they will be in use for a long time

Very cool…. I love to see people using less common wood. Hickory and many other hardwoods are not being utilized. Looks like a great job!

I hate it when I have to wait over a month to install because they aren’t ready. I love this kitchen

Congratulations, Jesse. You did a fine job on that kitchen and it’s very attractive.
