We tore an old house down a few years ago and I saved all the Chestnut lumber
that I could to build this kitchen with.
I hope you like it, some people don’t.

It’s horrible. Terrible. Take it down. Pack it up… And ship it to me.

I’ll dispose of it all properly! :)

(j/k)

Love it when people reuse that wormy chestnut. I have a few boards I’ve picked up here and there over the past few years. I’d like to try an incorporate some of it into some projects I want to do with some 100 year old reclaimed white oak I have, as well. Thought that would make a nice combination.

My mom has an old cedar chest up in her living room. It isn’t much – made with butt joints and glue and brass pins, but the lid has a small banding of chestnut going around the edge of it. That makes it one of the coolest cedar chests I’ve ever seen, in my book.

I love it when it is used in small accents like that.

But I’d take a whole kitchen of it, too…

Nothing but compliments from us. I’ll take this over any kitchen I’ve had so far.

Fantastic job, Charles.

Perhaps it’s the idea of having anything ‘wormy’ in a kitchen. LOL

Man nice looking cabinets. I really love the way they look. I wish i could convince my wife to have the beauty of wood grain revealed cabinets. I made a vanity for our bathroom once out of white oak, beautiful. She painted it white. Same goes for our kitchen cabinets. Ha Ha Ha. Chris
