This is a wet bar I did for a customer that gutted one of his bathrooms in a remodel. The drain and water lines were already there! Probably one of the most difficult cabinet jobs I’ve done. Just because of all the 45 degree angles. All in all it turned out to be my best work to date. Two drawers and three pull outs all on soft close glides. I also used bluhm hinges designed for pull outs on the two cabs, they prop the door out of the way so you don’t have to use cleats on the cabinets and you get a full width drawer box…really cool. All boxes are black melamine with quarter sawn White oak. Wall cabinets are “display” boxes with dimming puck lights inside and underneath. As you can see, I still have to make a door for the fridge…He was originally going to get one with a glass door.

That is really beautiful. Great job. I don’t think it is an easy job.
How did you cut the granite marble?

WOW. That is a seriously beautiful piece of work. I’ve never seen black melamine before—what a great compliment!

Thanks woodworm, But I actually hired a granite fabricator to do the job. I was extremely impressed with how they cut and installed it in one piece. Turned out beautiful.

Nice job. I like the QSWO with the black counter tops.
