    Cherry Kitchen Before & After

    Here is a kitchen I remodeled. A couple of before pics & some when it was almost finished. Cabinets were all cherry. The drawers I made out of Hard Maple mounted with undermount soft-close slides. Everything was built in the shop I setup in the garage. I even did the finish in there. The only thing I did not due on this was the tile work which I usually do my self, but had too much other stuff to work on. Thanks for looking.

    James, what a drastic difference. It even looks bigger now. Great job.

    I think I will come over and get some tips from you when I am ready to redo the kitchen, in a year or two.

    Nice shop too. Have you done a formal shop tour yet. I couldn't find it in the shop tours section.

    No formal shop tour. I have about 3 times more equipment than is seen in the picture. I have a hard time finding it when I want to work in it.

    Wow, what a transformation.

    So...you've been doing this whole woodworking thing for a little while, huh?

    Wow, that cherry just simply looks stunning!!

    I notice your machines are all set up on wheels, I guess you move stuff around to where you need it when you need it eh?
