Before buying a new house, I completely gutted my old kitchen and remodeled it, keeping only the ceramic tile floor. The old cabinets were rough plywood, so I built new ones. The top cabinets are hand dove-tailed and have antique German glass on the fronts. I put 6” tongue-and-groove board from floor to ceiling on all the walls and installed a wood-plank ceiling. The island is pine with an Australian cypress countertop. In one photo, you can see a table with benches and a vegetable bin in the corner that I also made. I built a three-section pantry closet beside the refrigerator. Each section has three shelves inside. Now, I just need to replicate all this when we move into the new place.

-- What this world needs is a little more sawdust on the floor.

all this nice custom work and now you are moving? I’m doing the same thing. Ha!

oh, well, as if we could put cheap cabinets in our house! I hope you enjoyed making the cabinets at least. I did.

nice job, and good luck with your new house.
