Nice work, Obi.
You will hardly find any kitchens built in Australia in the past 15 years that are made of wood although there are some. Most of these are a flush clean veneered substrate rather than solid wood. I suppose this is more the European influence. This is more the standard here. These tend to be vinyl wrapped MDF, but some are MDF painted in a two-pack glaze finish.

Thank you very much, y’all, I just felt i had to post these because this is what started it all for me.And Karson? I’ll come build your cabinets for ya. Cherry o.k.? And if you’ve never built cabinets before, I’ll show you how it’s done, stand around and drink your coffee, eat your food, charge you about $5,000.00 and make you do all the work. Good deal?

Of Course you have to put me up, but sleeping on the couch is like camping. The good news is I like working in the shop so we could put together the cabinets in about 2 weeks.

Pretty good for a rookie. Too bad you didn’t talk to me first then you wouldn’t of had to do that thing to that one.

Dennis, only two. The pictures arent as clear, but I’ve already critiqued the cabinets. Tell me how many flaws you see, and what they are. I either know about them or if i don’t then I NEED to know about them.

So which of the flaws are the two you see? (I might be pulling your leg just a bit) If I where to question any thing from the photos it would be the arches on the narrow upper cabinets and the height on the refrigerator cabinet. But this is just minor stuff. It looks good from my house buddy!

I don’t see any flaws, but i know they’re there. Top left door, picture 1 (sanded with a random orbital sander, making them a little wavy, before I got the drum sander) doors 3,4 and 5 along with the first two doors were finished with polyurethane before I realized that the stuff takes 6 weeks to cure.
Cabinets above the Refridgerater were done per customers instructions, Drawer #3 under coffee pot was part of a big mess. The original drawers had no hardware on them so I didnt realize that when one opened it would bump into the hardware on the other drawer. (Why the hell didnt you tell me about this Dennis?)
So, to remedy this after the drawers were already made, the customer suggested that I cut the roman ogee trim off of the drawer and glue it to the face frame so that the drawer would open and the trim would stay there. Looks ok till you get right up on it, and we all know it’s there, but if you’re looking that close at someone else’s kitchen I think … You must be a lumberjock.
