I added additional kitchen photos, which shows more detail. Just ignore all the dust, I have been sanding the finish off a cypress wall.

Thanks for all your suggestions and insights. The cabinets are plywood with a thin veneer surrounding the majority of surfaces (Phillipine Mahogany according to the specificaiton sheets).
