The old cabinet doors were the 80s style cathedral raised panels. I sanded the old frames which were good quality red oak with a orbital sander. I built Arts & Crafts style inset doors and draws to replace them.
For the sides of the cabinets I build panels with stiles and rails to add that A & C touch.

Stained and finished doors on the workbench. I mix my own stain and used Minwax Wipe-on Poly oil based satin finish to avoid over spray in the room. Scrap oak and chop sticks sharpened in a pencil sharpener were made to elevate the drying doors.

I made a light shield in the A&C style with four mortised holes on each side to protect your eyes from the LED light.
Thanks for visiting

James, they look great. However, I’m curious why you have a microwave in your launder room?

Microwave in the laundry room? In case I get hungry. LOL. There’s also a freezer chest there. The laundry room is next to the kitchen. It’s convenient there and frees up space in the kitchen counter.
I also need to put a granite counter under it.
Art. I hope that satisfies your curiosity.

Nicely done. Beautiful workmanship. Sorry to go off subject, but I however am curious about the artwork hanging under the cabinets. Did you make that as well? My wife and I are crazy about ‘fish art’.
