Technically – I guess this should be “completed” but it’s my project in my house and we all know how that goes. I actually started in 1999 … SOMEDAY I’ll finish it. Probably right before I sell the house!
I still need cabinet knobs, thresholds, a few moldings, and the final coats of finish … OOOPS – yeah gotta get to that someday. I think it about already needs a refinish now.
Cabinet frames are quarter sawn beetle hole oak, cases are 3/4” plywood (oak exterior) with lumber core shelving all 3/4” even the backs. Screws and construction adheasive – these will NEVER come apart.
Corian counters, tile floor, oak wainscoting. Corner units are solid oak. Country style dining table is solid oak with a walnut banding. Floor in the dining area is solid oak.
The good lazy features, pot filler faucet, plumbed in coffee maker, island sink, wash sink and lots of garbage disposals. If I did this again I’d get a professional dishwasher. The six burner stove is great, and the indoor grill definitely a plus!
Someday I have to scan the before photos – wow that florescent ring in the center of the room that was the ONLY light. The 70’s brown paneling and yellow linoleum floor, fake brick on the walls! ??? Nasty … ugh !
Anyway – as the kitchen came together it functioned very well. I’ve had 12 years of lots of meals in here, catering events from 2 people to 300 people.
I look forward to the next kitchen I design – there will be more stainless and corian than wood though! I want full all out commercial next round.
