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!

These are some beautiful wood kitchen cabinets. What type of wood are they made from?
I just repainted the walls, to a colour other than seasick green....and yes, the new appliances are black.
When you say you have "repainted the kitchen" did you
mean you covered up all of this nice wood?
Beautiful cabinets! They are similar to what I was thinking of doing - great inspiration. Only one "criticism" ... when you get a few bucks ...... stove needs to be black!
