We built this kitchen for the Mahannah/Campeau family near Montreal. We used their own ash wood from their family farm hear in the townships. There is a 20 foot wall, a 10 foot wall, and an island 6 feet by 10 feet. There is also a custom made butternut table and a large deacons bench with storage space attached to the island. There are oats carved on a door and cow inspired brackets above the stove fan. We also did their bathroom. Thank-you for this great opportunity.

oh my goodness—that is SO beautiful and to have the wood come from the farm… amazing.

I’d just stop and smile every time I entered the room.

Very nice cabinets, makes my humble kitchen remodel pale in comparison, but I’ll post when complete, anyway.. Excellent joinery, a young man of extraordinary talent !

How’d you tint that ash; it’s incredible. The table/bench is an unusual setup but I imagine it’s quite functional. The cabinets are outstanding, but that’s plainly obvious. This is one to be really proud of.

Beautiful kitchen! I’d like to see the dining table and chair match the environment. Maybe the family will consider you to make them a new dining set!

Very nice!
When customers ask for a wine rack I always ask if they have 6 bottles in the house right now. If not then they don’t qualify for the wine rack.
