Thanks Bob, It's really a labor of love. Lots of labor, lots of love  :lol:

I am still at the beginning and have quite awhile to go.

OK so more sanding with 1000 grit and more coats and I am now done with the cabinets. I think I struck a good balance between the "organic" look peter was talking about and the gloss i was looking for. They actually look wet  :lol:. I am making more progress on some other design elements and will post more pics soon.

A lot of work up til now has not been sexy at all. Lots of prep work before anything gets assembled. worling mainly on grills and base here.

Wow those are coming out great Jim! Nice finish, semi-glossy satin looks just right, imo. And the veneer is beautiful grain and color.

Thanks, the detail is functional as well. provides venting for cooling. Not sure it needs it but figured it was unique.
