This is my first kitchen cabinet project. It took me one year and ten months to complete this project working a couple of hours on weeknights and Saturdays and Sunday afternoons. To give you some idea of the scale of this kitchen…the island is 4 feet wide and 11 feet long. The homeowners wanted all drawers in the base cabinets and raised panel and glass doors on the uppers. I made over 100 drawers for the kitchen, laundry, master bath and two other baths and over 75 raised panels. The appliance garage features a tambour door.
The wood is Guatemalan mahogany or Santos mahogany. All of the doors and side panels on major components have raised panels and the drawer fronts were flat slabs. The finish was applied by the homeowner and is three coats of wipe-on poly.
