I just toured the presidential suite at the Grand Californian hotel. The suite rents for $6500 per night, and your kitchen is much nicer!
I am actually floored by your project. This is simply second to none.
How many BF of white oak would you guess it took?

Very nice. I make cabinets for a living, and I would be proud to claim that work as my own. I love the stained glass.

The kitchen is really beautiful. The leaded glass work adds a special touch. The rest of the house looks spectacular, too.

It is a real challenge doing numerous cabinets in a small shop, but you made it work wonderfully.
