Hi John, the cabinets at Lowe's were maple with a glaze.
I couldn't see spending all that money for something that could be painted and glazed that would give me a very closely matched cabinet.
I used 4'x8' sheets of cabinet grade plywood for the cabinet sides, shelves, cabinet fronts, and the rails and stiles around the mdf raised panel centers on the doors.
Thanks RLHERRON, it turned out ok. You realy have to look hard to see that plywood was used for the rails and sliles.
