The doors are made out of white oak with mdf veneered panels. The worktop is black walnut and some of it has also been used to add interest to the tall cupboard end panels. Black walnut was also used for the draw fronts.

The washing machine, dishwasher, tumbler dryer, fridge and freezer are hidden in cupboards built to house them and still give good access.

The walls of the kitchen have been tiled with a mosaic of various woods, much of it from the off cut bin, cut to size and beveled and then finished with yacht varnish. This saved the cost of ceramic tiles, was easier to tile,
saved some money and looks unique.

The cabinet carcases were made from blockboard which is laminated pieces of softwood sandwiched between two sheets of ply giving a thickness of 18mm. It is much lighter and easier to work than chiopboard or mdf and cheaper than ply. The end panels are made from solid oak strips glued into panels.

The wine rack holds about a weeks supply “hic”.....

Those are some really fine cabinets, excellent craftsmanship. I especially like the walnut counter top, very nice looking.
Thanks for showing.
