These are maple cabinets with granite counter tops.

I used prefinished plywood for the interiors with raised panel ends and doors.

It was stained with a custom red/brown mixture, sealed with two coats of sanding sealer, sanded between each coat, and sprayed two coats with semi-gloss lacquer, sanded between each coat. The cabinets were sanded six times from start to finish. It makes a real slick finish.

Charles, I really like the angled cabinet that you added beside the microwave. I bet that will turn out to be a shoulder or head saver depending on how tall your family members are.

I agree with Grant, the coffee station/microwave area is well thought out so that there aren’t sharp corners in the traffic area.
Beautiful work!

You do every thing in a big way the kitchen is very nice. The only thing that is out of place is the refer. You should have setit into the wall by the door opening with the refer door flush to the inside wall face, or wrapped the refer in wood.
