Slowly, slowly, too slowly, I’m doing a kitchen for a friend. It’s not really my thing, but her builder took all the money and (I’m guessing) spent most of it on cocaine.
This is just one of the units. I wanted it to look a little different from the others, almost like an older freestanding piece that we’d built into the rest of the kitchen.
I’ll admit that, underneath the paint, it’s all sorts of scraps: a bit of douglas fir, some pine, some meranti, some MDF, some ply. On the other hand, I can also say that there are only 7 screws holding it together, and 4 of those are for the Rhodesian teak countertop. The rest is all hand-cut mortise & tenon (see why I don’t like doing kitchens?)
I think the bit I’m happiest with is the handles – they add just the right pop of colour and tie the unit together. I took standard versions, and just superglued a thin strip of teak on.
