These dated cabinets were beyond help.  Since we were updating the narrow galley kitchen, it made sense to start new.  I used computer drafting to layout the cabinetry (more on this later — check back), and obtained a few quotes in the $12,000 range for natural cherry with shaker style doors and solid plywood construction (not particle board).  If I had time, I could have built them for $2500.

Well, we eventually found a manufacturer who supplies the trade, and does not do any finishing!  So, I basically stained, finished, and installed them complete for $5000. Wholesale cabinets. Quite a reasonable solution for kitchen full of custom genuine cherry cabinets.  The finishing process was pretty easy — you could do it yourself.  I am preparing a series of articles on how to complete this yourself, so bookmark and come back!

Left to do: trim and countertop.

  1. I recommended it on stumbleupon. The only thing that it’s missing is a bit of new design.
