I bought this house for a remodel back in 2007. I refaced most of the cabinets, the ones that were salvageable and made the rest of them. Used red oak. Made all of the doors and drawer fronts. The picture with the microwave, tore out that wall behind it, and made these two cabinets. cabinet on right has two trashcan drawer slides. When I bought this house, I hadn’t done much woodworking in several years, and could tell it when I got done with them. The first cabinet I built, I had to go back and remake because I didn’t like the quality from the last one, haha. There is a floor to ceiling 20 inch pantry on the left side of the frig. I will add a picture of it later. Thanks for looking.

I used 3/4” red oak for the face and door frames. 3/16” oak veneer for the sides and the centers on the doors on the refaced cabinets. Used contact cement to glue it on. The cabinets I made used 3/4” cabinet grade oak for sides. All from Home Depot.
