One of a Kind Kitchen Cabinets

1 Material
Build your cabinet doors and burn your favorite design into the wood for a little detail and personality.
First you start with your door frame. Routered and sanded edges. The next pic shows an additional detail in the center where we carved out around the center and used a dremmel tool with a rounded tip to make little dents in the wood for texture. The next step was to find a design, use carbon paper to transfer the image onto the wood and then burn the image.
This pic shows the black paint added and the burned images completed.
This pic is after installation on the cabinets
Corner cabinets
Drawer cabinets were done just a little different with the burned design.
We had a small area in the cabinet design that was dead space, that we decided to make an inset door with a simple design.
Lower cabinets completed.
Suggested materials:
  • Oak wood, dremmel tool, wood burning tool, router, mouse sander, stain, black paint and clear coat   (Lowe's, Michael's)

    Very inspiring job. Artistic and well executed. Do you have a window near by? A frosted twin on the window corners would be a nice compliment.

    Great work! The design is graceful, and compliments the beauty of the wood. I love to see work like this.
