After the old single wall oven crapped out it was time for a complete remodel. Out came the onsite built in 1967 plywood cabinets that had held up fairly well over the years. I ended up buying a few hundred board feet of black walnut ( a whole tree ) for a price i couldn’t pass up.

6 months break from kitchen. Now its time to finish before wife divorces me:)

Nice job on the cabs, but as the one who does 95% of the cooking in our house I gotta say …
I’d KILL to own that stove! :-)

after a month of researching a replacement range we went with the Verona ( never heard of it before, cost 1/3 of the price as the names i have heard of) i must say it is an AWESOME range.. so i couldnt just use the old plywood cabinets and the remodel gave me a chance to buy a crap-ton of wood lol

Nice work! I like the idea with the toe kick drawer. Way to use all the available space efficiently. Also, I have to agree on the stove: WANT!
