Crystal Palace. The door and drawer fronts for this kitchen are made from cherry-veneered Finnish birch-plywood, with routed scoop handles revealing the beautiful layers of the birch ply behind. Veneer is bookmatched so grain runs across drawer fronts. The sink is thermoformed in the Corian worktop.
