Sorry for the delay....finally ready to post some pictures of my
Conestoga cabinets. Went with natural cherry on sink wall/stove wall and island. Back wall is Hearthstone Grey with a white glaze.
Shaker Style. The quality is phenomenal! Love my kitchen, though still need to do a backsplash. Also used 12" cabinets and made a window seat. Used the cherry. Looks great! Will post those pictures when the cushions are ready. Hmmm. might have to post pictures one by one. Not sure how to do more.

RE: Anyone have Conestoga Cabinets in Crystal White or Chesapeake (Follow-Up #20)

Forgot to specify doors - they're CRP-10 with reverse G cove raised panel (I wanted a heavy weight to the door). The door edge profile is L-686 and the frame has a regular bead. There are a lot of decisions that go into buying these cabinets and you need to thoroughly read through everything and do your research. goodguy is absolutely right about everything he said. We only had one filler too (microwave, lol). That said - there are quite a few custom face frames and that's where we ran into problems. The guy that we ordered from didn't change the face frames when placing the order so many of them had to be reordered (at his expense but delayed us quite a bit). I will say that he was very patient although I know he was frustrated because it was a very large custom order. We did not just the kitchen but a butler pantry, built in china hutch, master bath and four cabinets on either side of the fireplace. The quality is great but definitely get a good installer. Especially if you go with inset. The doors need to be done accurately. We assembled ours but had our builders cabinet guy put the doors on and install them. It was a mistake for us to build them before putting the doors on for inset cabinets. Lesson learned but I hope not to do this again for a very long time!
