I did my first solid oak doors and birch drawer fronts in island (painted white to match existing cabinets)... built the island, pantry, added crown to cabinets, baseboards, new floor,wall paint, bought the column but you could make your own, overhead fan controls mounted in column at light switch height. (They come mounted on the front of the fan but had to be moved due to mounting the exhaust fan in the ceiling drop down.) I also built the ceiling drop down..actually, too much to mention here…it was an insane project.

I also made all of the window and door trim in the house..and the corner blocks. mdf through house but solid wood in bathrooms.

Made my first door too long but through a creative venture saved the door and no one had a clue. (Think about making a rail and stile door shorter after it’s glued…you can’t just trim the bottom, the rail on the bottom will be too narrow…the front had profiles cut in it…tricky fix)

Sold this house after remodel…didn’t even get to use this kitchen… I learned alot though…Photo of router table set up to make door and window casings.

Larger tools used…Old 6 inch King canada jointer (going to replace soon), 25 year old Sears 12” bandsaw, Older Delta 12 ” thickness planer…home made router table with Triton 2.5 HP router, Whiteside router bits, 10” 3HP Sawstop Industrial Cabinet saw and Ridgid 12” Mitre saw with FS Tool full thickness blade.

Reno of entire house with kitchen probably took about 1 year since the wall came down.

Nice work! The kitchen looks clean and inviting.
