This is a project I did last year for family.
We remodelled the entire kitchen from the basic modular cabinets.
The hood was fun. I’ve done several of these in the past. The molding is all hand carved on my workbench.
The wood is Alder throughout with a distressed finish and van dyke brown glaze.
The Island is black lacquer with a rubbed-through finish.
The style at the island is a beaded face frame inset with finial hinges.
The balance of the kitchen is european 32mm frameless cabinetry. The drawers are solid maple dovetailed on Blum Motion guides.
There is a double sub-zero fridge setup on the adjacent wall with the same carvings as the hood crown above it and a built-in Microwave oven in the upper next to it.
There is also a french-style dining hutch with turned and carved legs and aprons.
There is a huge laundry room that was totally devoid of cabinetry, so the old existing kitchen cabinets were repurposed in that room. The utility of it looked as if it had been planned that way from the beginning.
I have tons of photos, including in-progress pics, but haven’t encountered them recently. I stumbled on these two in my phone and thought I’d send them up.
I will add the others soon, so stayed tuned.
New photos added!
