Walnut veneer that doesn't feel like plastic?

7 years ago

I really want to do walnut slab doors when I remodel my kitchen. We are also putting in cabinets in our adjacent dining area this summer, which I would like to be a sort of test for our kitchen remodel. We've mostly looked at RTA solutions (Ikea, Barker, Scherr's), but we are open to other options.

I ordered a sample cabinet from Barker and liked it, but I though the walnut veneer felt and looked too "plasticky." I also have a few small samples from Semihandmade, some of which feel more like plastic than others.

Is there any source for high quality walnut veneer slab doors? Is this something I'm better off exploring with a local cabinetmaker?
