I finally finished my Black Cherry kitchen cabinets. I am not going to say how long it took to do the last 10% because it is embarrassing. I was forced to finish the last details because we put the home up for sale. I am pretty sure I will never build kitchen cabinets again.

Anyway, the 24 drawers are all soft maple with dovetailed joints mounted with full extension, soft close Blum slides. Fronts are all simple T&G with 1/4 hardwood, resawn bookmatched panels. The cherry is finished with a coat of Tongue Oil, two coats of poly and two coats of minwax paste. The island top is made of white oak with a hard epoxy finish.

Nice work. Kitchen cabinets are demanding from an effort standpoint. Sad to see you are selling. I have sworn off doing kitchens as as soon as I do, the female half of the team wants to sell. It seems there is some magical trigger. Hey dear I finally finished the kitchen!...Great let’s list the house!

Turned out great!!! That looks like a lot of work. I managed to convince my better half to sell the house rather than re-doing the kitchen. Of course there were some other factors too, but at least I didn’t finish it and then sell like you had to do.

Haha! I’m one of those who tends to avoid sapwood when I can – or hide it somewhere inconspicuous – but I appreciate what it brings to this project.

Too bad you won’t be able to enjoy it longer.

Nice work man!
Don’t feel bad – I’ve been working on mine for almost 10 years. Also cherry. Hope to post photos soon as it’s down to very small details.

Have your say...
