I started the planning on this kitchen back in 2008 and started building this project in March 2009. I will still be working on this project well into 2010 and so far it hasnt started to bore me, rather it gets more exciting as it reaches the end.

Its stands 10’ tall and the only other thing left to do on the kitchen is install the handles and stainless steel ladder rods just under the upper glass windows which support a custom stainless steel libraery ladder which is coming next week.

the whole project had to be shipped by barge over water, a four hour round trip, then hauled up what seemed like a mountain. heres a shot of a barge and Bobcat lifting the slab of marble for the island, which also had to have a big huge heavy torsion box made to ensure the marble didnt crack…....logistically problamatic.

kitchen ovens>

All the exposed sides are paneled on the same elevations as the doors, drawers etc, it has several secret compartments through the project, birdeye maple cutlery and silverware dividers, knife drawers, two dishwashers, cool appliances. All the face frames are cock beaded, haunched, drawers are all solid hard maple on full extension soft close tandem guides and the hinges are all solid pewter butts…..PITA but worth the effort when done right.

The view out onto Georgian bay is outstanding as there is 150 miles of open water so when the weather gets nasty…......its awesome

Very nice kitchen.
Georgian Bay is very pretty, I used to visit friends that had a place right on the water. Very pretty during storms and in winter was something else.

Wow looks great, like you could cook for an army in there. So there are 12,024 lumberjocks now. When are you having the open house so we can all come and see in in person? I like the glass front cabinets on top.

Amazing, what an incredible looking kitchen, I can see why you’re not getting bored! I spent a weekend on Georgian bay many years ago and enjoyed it a lot.

Beautiful kitchen.
I know this is really a big project that one man could not handle.
Great effort Roman.

P/s I like the picture of beautiful waterfront – it’s a big lake I supposed.

This is a beautiful kitchen, I love the looks.
I hope that one day my wise come true, that I
can go woodworking again.
This is one off my first great jobs.
Not so amazing like yours, but I do my best.

Thanks for showing,

That is some nice kitchen. We also have a white kitchen, and love it, but yours is ten times nicer! Congratulations on a very nicely done project. I hope you and your family get a lot of enjoyment from it
