The picture below is how it looks finished and i used wood just like in the picture above but with six coats of varnish.
Now i have another window and two doors to do just to finish this part of the kitchen.
After this i have to do the Plinth under the base units and the skirting boards. It's a good job i have enough timber to complete this. I do have the promise of another box to take apart to reuse the timber in it.
