Kitchen cabinets from reclaimed ash and pallets
I built this kitchen in my current house, using spalted white ash for the cabinet faces and door & drawer frames, and pallets for the panels. The ash was removed from the interior walls of a summer kitchen attached to the house, and the pallets were picked up for free at a local second-hand building supply store. I went through a lot of planer knives…. There was no stain used on the project, just a satin clearcoat. The pallets were tropical wood, and inlcuded various types such as purpleheart, bubinga and even rosewood. Carcases are made of paint-grade maple plywood with knots cleverly avoided or hidden. I also made the countertops, which are concrete. Since these photos were talen I have repainted the kitchen and bought new appliances, so it looks much better now!
