Curly Cherry & Sycamore Kitchen, was built for a Rental I purchased last year. Sycamore is in the Raised panels in doors and drawer fronts. Purchased the wood at Auction for about $.20 a board ft. So it made it’s use very affordable. used Min-wax Ebony stain and Lacquer finish. Total investment in kitchen was about $ 1,000.00 Used a Faun Marble that was also purchased a Auction for $1.00 sq ft. Cabinet plywood was purchased at cabinet shop auction for $4.00 for 4×8 ft sheets I bought 56 sheets. Thanks for Looking

Having built a couple of kitchens i can appreciate the skill and effort that went into this one. A beautiful job and the bonus is you did it on a tight budget. Well done.
