After writing the blog series “This Old Crack House”, I am finally getting around to posting the pictures.

This is the main kitchen that I designed, built and installed.

There are three kitchens in this home.

The details are featured in this blog entry.

I could sit here for hours, but then I wouldn’t get any projects made. It’s tough being torn between making and admiring. The other pictures from the house make me glad to be a wood-a-holic. How can you know one? He/she is the one who crawls under it to see how it’s made. It gets the low dusting done. So invite all your friends to take a low level closer look.

Karson,

Hickory.

If you recall Karson, when I was writing about my decision and anguish of how and what kind of wood I would use to blend the “new” (addition) with the “old” existing part of “This Old Crack House”. I wanted to avoid having and “abrupt” change when you entered the new kitchen and addition from the old house.

I settled on hickory because of the grain pattern and the wood characteristics that allow it to blend new with old so well.

I also like the appearance and working with hickory. Perhaps that as much as what I described as reasons I used it in the kitchen played a prominent role in deciding the wood type.

Nice project. I wish I had the wife and energy to redo a home. You do great work and are very creative. Even the color makes everything look even better.

Debbie,

Yea yea yea…. lol

Oh trust me if there is something to find that needs fixing on a project “it will find me”.

I seem to have all the luck.

Murphy’s law you know.

Anyways, I know you are very capable of doing your own work.

So, no more excuses get going!

well, that $$ excuse keeps popping up :)
most projects I am OK with tossing together with scraps lying around. —but my Petticoat Junction kitchen, well, I want the doors to be beautiful (and of course it’s all about the hardware)
