You can't purchase these cabinets because they aren't manufactured anymore,these cabinets are from the 1960's.If you want one you'll have to have one custom built from a cabinetmaker or woodworking shop in your area.

The hardware for these can be bought at most glass shops.

It appears to be a cabinet grade plywood , probably a maple veneer with a stain, Maple is a pretty whitish color.

That looks a lot like a Travertine, Crema Marfil marble or possibly ceramic.

How did you refinish the cabinets? - I see these are original 60's mahogany, I have very similar wood built-ins and want this same look. Did you do anything do revive them? Restain or oil or varnish or something like that? Look forward to hearing from you, thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Does your home have an annoying upper cabinet that blocks your view of the family room? Do you feel cooped up in the kitchen while everyone else is having fun? Don't rip those cabinets down and lose the storage; open them up and enclose them in glass for see-through storage that keeps the view open, the light flowing and the storage intact.
4. Sliding glass. Once popular in the '70s, sliding cabinet doors have made a comeback in kitchens today. They glide on a recessed track (at the top and bottom) that allows two sheets of glass to travel back and forth as doors. Sliding glass doors sometimes have hardware that is drilled directly into the glass, but many simply have a finger pull cut through the glass.
