Continuing with Drawers and Doors...

We completed most of the drawer construction and painting today. It was a great day to be outside (at least in western Oregon). Here are all the pull-out shelves and drawers for the island and the hutch, just prior to staining. It took about an hour and a half to sand and assemble these - I wish things went as fast as they seem to on TV programs!

The wood appliques took paint pretty well. They are die-pressed plywood, so the edges needed quite a bit of sanding to get them smooth. I did ten of them with a sanding sponge in about 1/2 an hour - not a huge amount of work. The ones shown here have primer, 3 coats of paint, a coat of glaze and three coats of clear acrylic sealer.

They are ready to be mounted to the doors tomorrow. Here is how they should look.
