This was designed and built for my Mother’s kitchen in her old farm house. It is solid oak with no fasteners, plywood or engineered material. I’ll have to take some more pictures in color since this black and white is the only one I can find. The entire unit was designed around her metal canisters, a water machine, some baking goods and had to fit in between 2 door casements about 8’ apart. The Joinery is a mix of splines, half laps, dadoes, rabbets, hand cut dovetails, mortise and tenons, as well as the butcher block. The cove crown is hand made as well. The left corner cabinet houses a 5’ tall water machine with no shelves. The right corner cabinet is full of shelves for baking goods. The upper cabinet was for various things with the focal point being the series half blind dovetailed drawers running from end to end. Its hard to tell in this picture but he drawers are cut from a single figured piece of oak which if standing back 10 feet or so looks as if its a single piece running across instead of drawers. The lower cabinet is built to hold her metal canisters with 2 cutting board slots directly above it. The butcher block is made up of 3/4” slices of maple about 2” thick and is designed to slide out for an occasional sand/refinish. The entire unit breaks down into 4 units as it is quite large. 7’ tall by 8’ wide to be exact. The finish was just a 2 coat clear poly.

A long time overdue hehe. My parents recently moved and we had to disassemble this piece and move it to the new home. My mom remembered to grab a shot of it before we had completely taken it apart (couple doors are off atm). Until its moved and installed at least here is a color shot of it :)

Thanks for the color shot. We’re glad we’re not the ones having to move it! Your folks must be glad they could take it with them.
