Moved into this house a year ago and the Kitchen was not quite to our taste, needed some updating, and a need to brighten it up. The lack of counter space around the stove made it difficult to prepare meals, so off to the workshop. Started with this side of the kitchen and I am currently building the cabinets for the other side. I used White Ash that I had on hand, added a Golden Pecan stain, and finished with wipe on poly. Made my own veneer, which I found is not easy getting the seems to match, but I’m getting better at it. I cut out a 5 ft. door way to the left of the cupboards, which really opened up the kitchen/dinette to the living room, making for better traffic flow. Needless to say, the wife is very happy!
