I’ve been busy but I did take a moment to snap a few pictures of this kitchen which is somewhat typical of the projects of late.
Its all 3/4 veneer core cabinets with maple veneer on exposed surfaces and the backs are 1/2” of the same specie and all surfaces including those not seen are covered with three coats of lacquer.
The face framing and doors are painted hard maple and the island is cherry.
face frames are all haunched joined as are the upper glass doors, the rest are of the doors are mortise and tenon with applied bead moulding and hung with solid pewter butt hinges. Drawers are hard maple, dovetailed on solft close tandems.
Green granite, taupe in colour on the painted cabinets and a solid slab of 1 1/2” x 12’ x 5’ marble will grace the island.
Everything had to be barged in and I will take more pics when everything is done.
the tall 10’ cabinets will get a stainless steel bar attached to the 3” rail just under the upper glass doors which will suspend a custom made stainless steel ladder much like you see in a libraery. Viking and Bosch built in appliances, sinks.
All of it had to be barged over 30 miles via water.
It was the most complicated jig saw puzzle I have ever built to date and thankfully, it fit with surgical precision
