Replaced old laminated kitchen cupboards with solid hickory. Did not want to change sink base area, so we ordered cabinet fronts only. Worked out great. The only thing was, I had to build by own drawers…and, yes, they are 24” deep. I used a lock joint using the router. Simple to do, only 1 change to router set up. My husband and I also made the oak counter tops next to the stove. We then laminated the walnut, put a simple chamfer edge on it for trim. Counter tops are oiled as a finish. I think that will hold up well, can always be easily touched up. Also put trim on bottom of cabinets. A bit tricky, but well worth the effort. We took our time on this last winter, took 6 weeks doing a wall at a time so I could cook everyday. Waited 25 years for this. Love it!!!
