This kitchen has a combination of woods and finishs. The island is out of walnut and has an alder end cap cabinet. The refrigerator cabinet is walnut as well. There are two alder hutch cabinets, one on each side of the sink area. As you can see in the pics there is a combination of colors also. On each side of the oven is a small trapezoid shaped free standing table with barley twist legs.graham 3ble with barley twist legs.graham 4graham 5graham 2graham 1

Great looking projects. I really like the barley twists.

Did you use a legacy to do them?

Holy simolies thats beee-yut-E-ful! Each element is niocer than the next. The finishes are first rate.
Question: is the floor inlaid with wood or is that dark band simply darker tile?

Anyway, thank you for sharing.

every piece is beautiful and is eye catching… the hutches keep having me go back to them over and over… perhaps it is because they have that extra little “antique”-ey look to them.
