John Dean Custom Natural Cherry Wood Full Access Full Overlay Kitchen

Northford, Connecticut

This custom kitchen features full access full overlay style cabinets with shaker style doors. The cabinets are made out of cherry and feature a clear finish which allows for the wood’s unique grain to be put on display. The white quartz countertops brighten the room and apply a modern flair to the classic look of the clear wood cabinets. Unique kitchen features include a built-in microwave opening in the pantry cabinet and a lazy Susan corner cabinet that supplies ample storage space.


“I recently had John and his team build and install new custom kitchen cabinets. I was looking at all the options for cabinets, from knock-down mail order to custom/semi custom. I found Dean on the internet and was drawn to them because they sell pre-made semi custom as well as custom. My thinking was that as a wood shop, there should not be any fit issues even for pre-made since they could do any fabrication needed. John gave us a proposal for pre-made as well as custom. No contest!! The custom was more, but still surprisingly affordable. Don’t let concern about custom price keep you away. The results were nothing short of amazing. We have a kitchen of beautiful cherry cabinets with a clear flat poly finish, it celebrates the beauty of the cherry wood and complements the rest of the kitchen. John and his team were great to work with from beginning to end, very patient, detail oriented, with a strong customer focus, from design to install. If you are in the market for cabinets or any custom millwork, I strongly recommend stopping by his shop and look at samples of the work he has done – you will be impressed.” Howard B.
