we recently finished this custom curly maple kitchen and installed it in a local home from the 1920’s that my client has been renovating for the past two years. it was atypical in that, due to time constraints, we had to make the mdf sample sink and the templates for the slate countertops before we got very far underway on the project. usually, the cabinets are installed and then the templates are made. the countertops were cut in one piece by a local slate fabricator, sheldon slate (more factory photos at that link), of middle granville, new york. in the process we got to visit the factory and actually see the two foot thick block of slate before it was cut, which was an amazing thing. the last picture in the series above shows their 90” diameter diamond saw cutting the 1.25” thick countertop blanks. there are several blog posts with more photos and process descriptions at these links.
