My kitchen has limited amount of cabinet space. So this was a project I knew was going to enjoy building. I designed it, and built it to spec. It’s just about 95% oak. Mosaic tile top I had built for another project played a major role in the dimensioning of this cabinet. Equipped with full extension drawer slides. The drawer fronts, and door are made of Oak, Poplar, and Pine. With this type of assembly it’s difficult to keep them from warping, but its’ not too bad.
Also, this cabinet is screwed together for mobility. It weighs a lot so it would be too heavy to carry. It all worked out great.

Love the doors and drawer fronts.

I noticed that this cabinet really looks good when you use the “Zoom Pictures” button.

That’s a really nice, original cabinet. Thought I’d point out though that maybe your kitchen space issues are due to the fact you have a couch in there? :-)

I know you posted this cabinet 2 months ago—but I just saw it. I really like the design. I disagree with your profile however. You are indeed an artist. The shape, balance and construction are in perfect harmony. That is artistry meeting functionality. I look forward to your next posting.

Great Cabinet! Very creative selection of wood choice. Which adds alot of character in my opinion. Love the to top as well. The door and drawer spacing is spot on well done!
