This was my first frameless job. We did hickory wish an applied moulding. Next time I need to make the applied moulding smaller and increase the width of the rail/stiles on the door frames because the applied moulding was getting in the way of the door pulls. My bad.

Anyway, so doesn’t have stain, just a pre cat finish.

Starting to learn that hickory is a bit too hard to get too fancy with things. I think next time I’ll do something a bit more fancy if it’s soft like cherry or alder.

Oh, I also did the floor. It’s 2-1/4 3rd grade maple with Minwax Early American stain.

Looks good Dustin. Bet your ready for the sharpener!

Hickory certainly has its drawbacks for workability .

Quality cutting edges and more power will overcome that.

Great job on the kitchen. My eventual plan is to replace my circa 1980 oak kitchen cabinets with hickory.

If I were to get kitchen cabinets for a house I planned on living in for a very long time, it would be hickory. But my blades hate it. Everything to the sharpener afterwards.

Thanks guys!

Every time I do something in hickory I swear Neveragain!” But, eventually, its beauty wins out and I get pulled back into the vortex. Nice job!

Great job. Love the look of Hickory wood. I have cut a number of hickory logs off of our farm, and milled them out and letting them air dry now, but next summer, will use it to build our kitchen cabinets for the new house. Awesome work!

That’s a great looking kitchen. Frameless cabinets don’t leave much room for error when you are installing, no reveal to work if things aren’t flat and square. I did a large frameless job not that long ago, everything was 32 mm system, not my thing. I concur with the workability of hickory, sharp tooling and lots of horse power.
