Grain Matched Maple Veneer Doors with Solid Rails.
Chocolate Shelves and Granite. Glass Tile backsplash.
A Flip-Up appliance garage tucks under the microwave cabinet.
Acrylic dividers in the hutch drawers were a nice touch.

very nice, love the contemporary feel. especially like the two tone look. Are the doors a plywood slab with the solid accents added over the top or a full solid piece with a dato????or non of the above…

Stunning, modern look. So you are good at more than violins. :-)

Thanks for all the support and compliments!

brian88: The doors are 3/4” mdf core maple. The top and bottom rails are 7/8” thick solid maple with a tongue and groove joint to the panels and a small champhered edge. This construction would be problematic with solid wood since the expansion and contraction of solid wood would split the panels unless it could ‘float’ like a frame and panel door.

P.S. This was made in one bay of my 2 car garage and took about 6 weeks of nights and weekends after work.
