I am posting some photos of various projects I recently done. The kitchen is one I designed and built along with the house. It is of lacewood veneer and ebonized Lyptus. The backsplash is custom stainless strips. The mantel is of ebonized walnut and rock maple. There was a question about curved doors. The laid up curved pieces are 7 1/2” high of honduras mahogany. I included the curved pieces to show typical layering of wood on a curved mold.

Well obviously you are new here – but it’s quite apparent that you aren’t new to woodworking. Well done – you are a craftsman.

I like how you just threw in there that you built a house to go with your kitchen! Congratulations – beautiful work! Are you ever going to do it again?

John,

The kitchen is fabulous. To be honest I would have thought that this much lacewood would make a project too busy but the ebonized lyptus breaks it up and adds a nice contrast. I really like the way you took the cabinets all the way to the ceiling as well. Very nice done.

I look forward to seeing more of your work.

I’m wondering how did you curve the pieces like this? I know you can steam most lumber, but it looks like you used plywood and without cutting slots on the inside.

A little wild for my conservative tastes, but the craftsmanship is fabulous!

You did a beautiful job on this kitchen. Curved cabinets are fun to do. I designed and built a 24’ round library reception unit at work. I think we spent more time building a flat platform to build it on and the jigs to bend the plywood. Thanks for posting.

God Bless
