I was going to wait to put anything up on this project but this might be getting put on hold due to my first commission.

It is a small kitchen, my own. All 3/4” Red Oak Plywood carcases. Hickory Face Frame and Solid ends. Jatoba Edge Grain top 1 1/4” thick. It is going to get a nice small crown that stays off the cyling with accent lighting. It is also going to get a light rail on the bottom of the upper cabinets. I now have the dovetail drawers complete (poplar) and installed but no doors. I also redid all the drywall, plumbing and electrical.

The whole kitchen I finished with Waterlox Original. The countertop has 5 coats top and bottom.

Here is a picture of the upper visible end prior to finish with some mineral spirits on it.

Here is the lower portion of cabinets that sits directly below the above photo.
