I most say that this was a project of all projects. We really started with nothing and built it up to a beautiful Cherry Kitchen. I made these cabinets from some rough sawn Knotty Cherry that I milled into some great looking cabinets. I wish I could post more then 6 pictures. All the drawers have soft close full extension slides and the doors have soft close hinges as well. The floor has all been torn up and rebuilt with some great looking tile. The ceiling came down and all new lights were installed. Natural Tongue Oil was used for the finish with 2 coats of varnish over the top. He also wanted his trash can hidden away, so I figured out a cool way to make it all work. All in all we have been working on this since mid-July and have just finished it up the day before thanksgiving.

Steve, the wood is absolutely beautiful and the workmanship is almost unbelievable. It is nothing short of what I would expect from you. That is something to really be proud of.
