Here are a few pictures of one of our recent jobs. In the past couple of months we have completed 2 walnut jobs, both were larger scale jobs, and we completed a smaller hickory and a smaller maple job. The job I am showing is the maple job because it is a project we do not do much of. We rarely ever do anything with maple and I tend to avoid stain types of jobs. I tend to try and sell Walnut, Hickory and Mesquite and if stain is requested then I try and push Oak. But if required we do what the customer’s tell us. In fact, this maple job was sold as a walnut job but their In Laws told them walnut would be too dark for their color scheme so they went with maple.

You might notice this job has a glazed highlight in the profile portions of the doors. The drawer faces are going to get glazed on the Door lip profile as well. And we utilized a light rail molding which added a nice look to this kitchen.

There are a few things I need to finish. Some of my pictures appear grainy and so sometimes a picture cannot give something justice.

Also, on the advice of a recent customer, I am using twitter to post recent pics of our jobs. My twitter handle is topqualitycab and so I can be found with a simple search. If any LJ is interested in following our projects they will all be documented on Twitter so feel free to follow us :)

Good looking cabinets. That’s the same shade of maple glaze I put in my kitchen, except I didn’t build them myself. I wouldn’t mind seeing some pics of a run of walnut – it seems like it would be very dark unless it was in a gigantic kitchen.

great job, nice layout. i usually don’t build in maple either, most of my work is in walnut or cherry with the occasional hickory. but with that said the last 2 jobs have been in alder. again it looks great.
