I have replaced my old dated cabinets in my Butlers Pantry with some new QSWO cabinets that I have been making. I purchase all the oak rough sawn from a local sawmill and have been milling it down to make all the fronts. I have been using prefinished 3/4” oak plywood for the boxes. I still have yet to finish the counter tops and backsplash but I wanted to share these pictures with you all. I will have to say that the wine rack was a real pain in the rear but it turned out great. I finished the cabinets off with 2 coats of shellac onto the unstained oak to match the floor. I have included a few pictures of what the old ones looked like as well. Once I am done here, I will be moving into the Kitchen

Your butler’s pantry cabinets are really lovely. Your workmanship is certainly top-rate. However, if you were my neighbor, I would ask you kindly if you might consider “donating” your “old” cabinets to your neighbor. LOL I’m an old lady who still really likes raised cathedral doors!

L/W I did donate the cabinets…to the local Habitat society..I hope they like raised cathedral doors as much as you do! I plan on donating all those in the kitchen as well.

Thanks for all the great comments!
