    After two more long nights in the shop......

    I got the kitchen pieces done by the contest deadline of 11/24/2008. Even added a working light in the oven. Wood is red oak from LaVern in IN and red oak ply from Menards. Oven rack is a closet shelf. Sink is a restaurant pan. Doors and drawers are hardwood glue ups. Drawers are 4 cornered dovetailed with an omnijig. I am way tired now. If you like this I am asking for votes starting Monday. I will post a link on Monday once I know it. Someone told me to make my forums proud when I started the competition. Hope you all approve. Big thanks to Gary (GWCustom) for LOTS of advice during the build!
