This is an update to a previous project post. It’s been awhile because I’m doing everything, demolition, wiring, insulating, dry-walling, painting, cabinet making, counter top fabricating and installation. Only so many hours in a week around work and family.

The cabinet boxes are domestic 3/4” maple plywood. Solid wood is quarter sawn red oak for face frames, doors and drawers. Drawer boxes are 1/2” hard maple with baltic birch plywood bottoms. Finish is Waterlox original sealer finish.

I will update again as wall cabinets and trim are going in.

Great looking kitchen, lots of work to get to this point. I really like the cabinet color and design.

You’re doing a fabulous job on the kitchen. It’s a lot of work to do it all (we know from doing a few ourselves, too) but it is worth it in the end. Your wife has to be elated.

Terrific job on a formidable project. Nice design as well. This will be a hard act to follow.

Very nice work. I did the same with mine. Total gut of the kitchen and added wiring and spray foam. I used the same slides and love them and I also used quarter sawn red oak (for most of it). I look forward to seeing the rest.
