A lady friend of mine bought a house with what I call ‘a production remodel’. Generic box cabinets were all that was installed, and not plumb or level. She wanted to put some bling into the cabinets so I built/added the two end cabinets on the sink side with the smoked glass doors, added valance with light over sink, added crown mold on both sides made on table saw, built/added end cabinets over refrigerator, and built floating shelf with leftovers. There is also indirect lighting over the cabinets but I forgot to turn them on when I took these pics….....doh! Project was done last year in 2011. The smoked glass came from an ancient stereo that she had been saving for years, thus the huge gap between the doors. I had to build the cabinet doors around the glass. Hardest part was matching the existing finish, think I got it a little dark, but she is happy. From now on, I will take a ‘before’ pic.

-- cut that out!

Very nice job.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
