    My mother in law has a wood interior as well, think cedar, and fir, and she did a mahongony kitchen, it looks fabulous, and very rich. Of your choices I chose the clear finish. But relooking I like the dark brown finish best, just with different counter tops, and some rustic hardware.

    I like the contrast of the black stain. The others are too close and to me just look strange. My second choice would be painted for the same reason.

    Personally I like the contrast of the painted cabinets with the wood walls – however, since this is a cabin I assume you really want to embrase the cabin feel, so I think a darker stain will give you contrast while still keeping adding to the warm cabin feel.

    I would go with a darker stain on the cabinets

    I like the black stain. It’s a look I that will look fantastic and classic years from now.It also gives you a lot of opportunities to change up your decor as your tastes change.

    I like the black stain, because I like the contrast and also because I’m pretty sure my father would kill me if I ever painted wood!

    I much prefer the black stain.  I love the look of the contrast and, as a whole, I like the look of dark cabinets.

    My second pick would be the painted.

    I like the painted cabinets. I think it gives a nice contrast and will look a bit more styled, I guess. I really like greens on cabinetry where there is a substantial amount of wood involved.  But, I am typically drawn to more of a “farmhouse” feel in home design, anyways, so take that as you will.

    I know it wasn’t the original color you posted to stain but I love the deep green too!!  I voted for the black stain which looks awesome but I also really like the green stain.  Good luck!  That’s really sweet that your DH’s grandfather is making them!

    Though I didn’t think I would like it, the black is my favorite – I love the way they look in that picture. As a second, I think a dark stain would look nice as well but I do love that black!
