I made this about 6 years ago and never got any photos and recently was back there doing more work so here it is.
The cabinet boxes are made from maple veneered plywood, drawers are dovetailed on tandem slides. the face frames are a beaded haunched with flush mounted doors on butt hinges. Doors are M and T with solid wood panels.
The wood was harvested about 200 years ago which makes it all old growth. the boards sat out of the rain, the wind and sun for almost 2 centuries so its as dry as a popcorn fart, filled with natural holes and a natural patina that is difficult, if not impossible to replicate. Most of it has no stain, the blue parts is a watered down acrylic paint, rubbed off and glazed with a dark brown, all finished with pre cat lacquer.
The kitchen has at least 4 secret compartments, one of which he has yet to find. he must have been ahppy with the work as I have been back to do his closets, mirrors, boathouse and more booked for the future.
Enjoy and thanks for looking
and this is one of several mirrors I made for the same residence. made from re-sawn hand hewn barn beams, re-claimed white pine, stained black and dark brown
