I have discovered after 6 years of living in our old farmhouse that the cabinets are kitchenmaid. There is a metal tab on the inside rear of each with the name punched. As they have several coats of paint, I will have to strip to identify the species of wood. I have found little information online, other than a 1919 Good Housekeeping add and the parent company, Wasmuth-Endicott Company of Indiana. The worst part of the cabinets are trying to attach the doors, they are rounded and thin on the edge and even the smallest screw goes through the door. Thanks for any information.

I also have kitchenmaid cabinets in my kitchen. I too am unable to find a screw that will not go completely through the doors of the cabinets. It appears my only solution is to replace all the cabinet doors.

I can give you information on Kitchen Maid Cabinets. They were made by the Endicott/Wasmuth Co., Andrews, Ind. My Grandfather was the Endicott (at one time he was the International President of Kiwanis Clubs) and my Grandmother was the Wasmuth.
Feel free to contact me,

I have a whole set of Kitchen Maid cabinets and dry butler that I rescued out of a kitchen before the owners tore down a perfectly good art deco home to build a "more efficient"home. Completely stripped and painted white, all have the original "extras" in the cabinets and sink front with glass insert doors on all of the uppers. All cabinets have their original hardware and they are the crown of my 130 old Victorian Italianette. I simply love them!
