Very nice. I always loved the look of natural wood. I did an old cedar chest years ago. Stripped down roughly 10 layers of paint. Sanded and varnished it.

Seeing that cupbard door in the background brings back memories. I bought my grandfathers house off him when I was 18. Rented it out for a year while I was in college then moved into it when I had just turned 20. The kitchen cabinets were a nice oak but had a dark walnut finish on them. I painstackingly removed all the doors, sanded them down removing all the stain then refinished them in a nice honey oak colour. It made a world of difference and really brightened up the place.

Very nice. How much for a custom built cabinet with countertop 60 inches wide? I want one for the outdoor kitchen at camp. Though I imagine shipping would be a little crazy.

Man. that's looking good. At one time in my life I used to love doing restoration work. Even thought of making it a business but a regular paycheck was more enticing.
