I have been absent for to long but I have been working the wood. Here’s a kitchen I finished recently. It’s a maple raised panel stained Ipswich Pine and Laquered and then a Dark Oak glazeover the top. Took me to long to install. The previous kitchen had been installed in the late 40’s. Turned out nice in my opinion and the owners were happy which is the point since it is their kitchen.

This is a very nice set of cabinets. I like the run of cabinets over the window. This is essentially dead space that you added some storage to.

Well done.

Beautiful cabinets!

The uneven heights on the wall cabinets is somewhat unusual. Was that your idea or the owners?

Very nice! I like the color and the crown molding at the top as well as the bank of cabinets over the window and the light. I also like how you did the doors on either side of the sink, unusual, but very very nice and well thought out!

Thank you all for your kind comments. Now to answer some questions.

Steve Phelps- The Maple was light butter in color and fairly consistent in contrast. It was first stained with a Minwax Ipswich Pine. I then sprayed three coats of water-based lacquer (sherwin-williams). The “glaze” is done by wiping of a Minwax Gel Stain in Dark Oak and then wiping it off with a clean rag. This leaves a residue behind on the flat surfaces and very dark areas in the corners and edges/recesses.

Charlie M.- The design was not my own. I went off drawings from the contractor and my own measurements. The cabinets above the sink are different and quite inaccessible but because of the ceiling height a valence or nothing at all would have looked odd as well in my opinion.

There is also a pantry unit that I could not show in the other pics. It is on a opposite wall. I’ll try to get some pics of it on today.
