Because Semihandmade Walnut fronts are a natural product, there are variations when it comes to striation and color. “You’re seeing basically this one-of-a-kind, once-living thing playing out across 10, 20, 30 cabinets. Things like burl or knots or even the newer sapwood add this incredible character,” Semihandmade Founder John McDonald says. “You can replicate a lot of it, some of the man-made stuff is incredibly realistic, but it will never be the real thing.” 

Cost of Custom

While Walnut fronts are more expensive than the other Semihandmade offerings, the cost for a walnut kitchen is still approximately 30 percent less than going with a custom kitchen.
