New Cabinets

About 3 years ago I posted pictures of the lower cabinets I built in my wife's new kitchen. Well I finally got around to building the upper cabinets. This was my first attempt at building upper cabinets. They are built out of Birch plywood and faced in Maple. Stained with Minwax Ipswich Pine #221 and have 4 coats of Minwax Polycrilic clear gloss. All the trim was hand made with the exception of the Egg & Dart. I have about a month of time in it. Well that is 8 full days and 20 after work days of working on it. The cabinets that are painted white get solid doors and the stained cabinets get glass doors. The book case on the far right does not get any doors.

3 years to make the upper cabinets? You truly are married to a saint :)

I will say, it was worth the wait. They look sharp. She must love it.

Very nice stuff. The upper cabinets really pull the whole project together. Your wife must be very happy. Fantastic work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

Sorry about her seeing the backsplash. LOL Both Home Dept and Lowe's carries it. The price is the same at both places. $19.95 a sheet. it's 18"x24" they have a web site, www.acpideas.com.

Actually I've always been a fan of that look, never saw it used as a back splash, but it definitely works. Is it as stout as the older tin work?
