Here is my version, in cherry, of the old -time kitchen cupboards that everybody’s Grandma had in their kitchen when I was a youngster. Any of you Andy Griffith and Mayberry fans? Mine is very similar to the one Aunt Bea had in her kitchen.

Finish is a blend of oil finishes, hand applied in several coats.

The finish glows and the hardware is perfect. Beautiful piece of work Sawdust. Just beautiful. Thanks for letting us see it.

I could see incorporating this into my kitchen… (and redoing the cabinetry to match of course)
