I want to see what everyone thinks of my last project (actually my first). I'm a general contractor that works in older homes. I had a customer ask for custom Arts and Crafts styled cabinets. I said sure and got to work. Never built cabinets before this. I'm finishing up the couple doors that aren't on in the pictures now. We did the whole kitchen. gut, plumbing, electrical, flooring, windows (moved them), door to the garage, built the cabinets, built the range hood by hand, and did all the tile work. Want to here what others have to say about the woodworking. Thanks.

Thanks guys. The toe kicks aren't finished yet, they have an arc matching the upper cabinets. Making them right now. Router had broken so i needed a new one. That hood was fun to build. $300 bucks total in materials. .031 110 series copper. Closest thing i could find to what the customer wanted was 10gs. Wish i had gotten paid that much.

Well, at least you started with an easy project ;)
No room for error with inset doors--nice work.
Did you buy a trim kit for the fridge to attach the front panel? What prevents the door from hitting the stile on the hinge side when it opens?

Again, nice!

No kits of any sorts. It's a sub zero. For 7gs, you get a nice articulated and balanced opening. It swings wierd and stops at 100 degrees. Pretty cool fridge. Heavy as all heck.
