I'm scoping out redoing our kitchen cabinets, and have read the
threads here, and bought a few books on the subject. I need a point
of clarification. My wife loves the look of cherry for the cabinets,
which I believe means she would like it for the drawer faces, doors,
and face frames. Should I carry the cherry look through to the
cabinet carcasses themselves, that is, use cherry plywood for the
sides, tops and bottoms? Or would that make it too dark inside the
If not cherry, then what? The finish on the cherry will be natural.
Clearly, the outside cabinet sides that will show will be cherry
plywood, but I'm looking at the insides, the back face, even the
shelves. Drawers will probably be a hardwood, but I haven't nailed
that one down, either. I'm just stumbling over myself on this one.
Any help gratefully appreciated.
