This is a small dry bar that I built recently for a repeat client. This space is directly between their eat-in kitchen and their large patio, so it allows easy access whether they are entertaining inside our out.
The construction is American birch and American birch veneer, stained with a rich tobacco-brown and then finished with a colored varnish. The client had not selected hardware yet, so we used post-it notes as temporary drawer pulls.
The client didn’t expect to put anything large in the cabinets, so the full depth of the base seemed to waste a lot of space. Almost all casework jobs have dead space that could have a hidden compartment, but making that hidden space useful can be difficult. We decided to divide the base cabinet so the front section could be used for additional shelving and the back section could conceal a trash pull-out.
