The biggest project I have done was my own kitchen. Nothing went according to schedule. Right in the middle of the installation side of the project my daughter had a burst appendix, and three weeks later had to go back in to remove an abscess. My wife, God bless her, was doing dishes in the half bath.
The Cabinets were made of maple. If you looked at my “Rex” billiard table, the wood for this project came from the same source. We decided since we were only going to do this once we were going to do it right. We used stainless bar pulls, all ballbearing slides, and we put on a Sile Stone counter. The boxes were all 3/4” birch ply. We have 9’ ceilings and utilized all of it. I built a top cabinet to go over the uppers. They were designed to overhang the uppers by 2”. It made for a very nice look.
