Hello everyone – Here are some pictures of a kitchen that I and a friend of mine (Jimmy Santero ) just finished. This is Michelles kitchen, and the cabinets are from China and had to be assembled and installed by Jimmy and I. I did the granite work, and built the table that you see in the center. Thanks to Jimmy for his help, as I would have been pulling my hair out, because cabinets from China are not the best in the world. He really helped me a lot and it all looks great. Michelle let me pick out the stone for this job, and she really loves how it all turned out. We had to do some creative altering to a couple of the cabinets, fortuneatly they were plywood cabinets, and made an open spot for her artsy things above the sink as a filler. This is some of the “bread & butter” work I’ve been doing lately. Will be working on a very cool kitchen soon, where I actually get to build cabinets again, I haven’t built cabinets in a few years, should be fun. Have been very busy working on other things that I hope to post in the near future. Hope you like the pics. – Dan

WOW!! Dan, Beautiful Granite craftsmanship & color. To bad the cabinets were made in China, was it a lot cheaper that way? The Kitchen is beautiful. Great job.

-- - Jei, Rockford IL - When in doubt, spray it with WD-40 and wrap it with duct tape. The details will attend to themselves.
