We did this kitchen about 15 years ago or so. Its all out of cherry, all surfaces were hand scrapped. Moldings were lightly hand chased. This was and still is one of my favorite projects that I’ve been lucky enough to be a part of.
The two basket of flower carvings took me around 80 hours a piece, they were my own design.
This project was done not to long after I did the western table. These were my first to attempts at flower carvings of any kind and I haven’t done any more like them since. Both carvings are 3” in depth at there deepest point, they came out of a 4” thick chunck of cherry.
They are a little tattered but I still have the orginal patterns that I drew.
