Hi everyone, I finally got around to remodeling my kitchen. I started building the cabinets the first week of July. We gutted the kitchen back to the studs. I hired out the Electrical, plumbing, drywall and painting. I did everything else (I forgot how much I hated tile work).​

The cabinets are all prefinished plywood, The stained cabinets are Alder with a custom stain I mixed myself. The island is made of Soft Maple with a white lacquer and glaze finish. The legs are from Osborne, I made everything else.

Well, its not completely finished. There is a light rail molding that goes around the bottom of the uppers and a few pieces of molding to go at the bottom of the island. I am working on them now before all my tools get gone. If you haven't seen my "for sale" ad, I am getting out of woodworking for awhile. I just don't have the time anymore. This kitchen was the last thing on the list.

Thanks for looking, and also a big thank you to everyone that has sent me PM's wishing me the best. This is a great bunch of people here.

Wowzer-that's be-a-u-tiful!

And more power to you-doing your own kitchen can certainly drive you mad.

OK you have officially killed my idea of re-doing our kitchen. You've set the bar waaaaay too high and if I ever redo it, it will have to be a secret kept from NCWW (i.e I'll never share pics).

Nice work - design and execution. Very impressive.

Ditto What Henry said! I have a kitchen redo in my future within the next 18 months - bar set way high...

Beautiful work. Well done.

Love it. :eusa_clap :eusa_clap :eusa_clap :eusa_clap :eusa_clap

We had our kitchen redone 2 years ago. I would have liked to done the cabinets and work myself, but I knew it was way too big of a job for me. As it turned out we were so disgusted with the job we would have had the work ripped out if we had the cash to have done it.

Eh, It is ok. Haha, just kidding. Unbelievable work. Looks great. Judging by your name and the shirt you were wearing and the stamp on the drawer, it looks like you do this for a living. How long have you been doing kitchens?

Thank you everyone for the compliments. I sprayed the last coat on the remaining moldings last night. I hope to get them installed this weekend and finally wrap this kitchen up.

Thanks again.
