this ia kitchen i built for a friend of mine. the wood is quater sawn white oak with the panels are resawn to have book matched panels. all the frames are mortise and tenoned together. the doors are also mortise and tenoned. i use maple for the inside of the cabinets to help keep the interiors light. there is also some walnut for accent color, but the owner stained some of it with a heavy coat of stain to match the trim tn the rest of the house

These are very nice cabinets, Mike. The lighting in the upper cabinets is an unusual touch.

Thanks for the post.

Man, what a project! There must be hundreds of hours invested – and from the results – it lookss like it was worth the effort. Great job, and high style on this job!
