(2 sets of project pictures) I built these cabinets and remodeled our small kitchen about 13 years ago. They are made with red oak and stained natural with a sprayed lacquer finish. I used biscuit joinery for the face frames and door panels. The shelves in the base cabinets have drawer guides for easy pot and pan retrieval. I also did the laminate work. The tile work was my design and was done by my step son. The 4” crown molding was purchased and I made the dental molding. The oak edge mold incorporated on the counter top was my design and a special order and purchased. The company that had to make it, had to make it 3 times to get it right. (Said it was to hard to attach the oak strip and they would never do it again.)
I am going to build new doors in the near future, for the opening above the stove, left when we changed the microwave to a larger one.

The pantry is well stocked and there’s hot cocoa on the shelf…looks like you’re set for the winter!

Nice job on these Gene! They look great!

Very nice!!!! Always a pleasure to see beautiful craftsmanship. I recall, it took me one pantry to learn that DEEP shelves are a liability, not an asset. We kept “losing” canned goods.
