Thanks Metro.

This is exactly what I'm trying to achieve. Country/Heritage with a bit of modern mixed in.

Think of stainless steel counters with a white back painted glass back splash. It would give off a slight greenish hue.

I like the style and white lat board look of middle. I prefer less contrast on frame color. Great idea!

I agree with Dorado about the handles. They may be clothes catchers.

I'd also worry about fine grooves and white being a PITA to clean and keep clean, especially in a kitchen that gets a lot of use. Fix'n it's suggestion would eliminate that. Since you're essentially framing the wood, you could select something really interesting, such as curly maple or purpleheart.

Since you're headed toward something transitional, what about hickory inserts?

Thanks for the comments.
We'll see how dirty this panel gets. I live with some real food slingers now.

May I suggest a frosted or reeded glass insert. If you ever go to sell your place, I don't think too many potential buyers will go for your design.

Thanks for your input. The potential buyer scenario is interesting as my house is right on a main street making it somewhat undesirable already.
