This was a fun project all around.  We took out an old indoor grill and fan unit and custom made these cabinets to match the ones that were in the rest of the kitchen and had been painted in the craftsman style.  The biggest challenge was re/manufacturing the hinges that matched the doors to work on the thin styles of the glass doors.
