Wow! You do some great work. I would love it if you could blog on here and read your thoughts while on the job, but then again with the work you do you are probably too busy.

Thanks for sharing

Beautiful! As much as people love “wood” cabinets- high quality euro cabinets made of composite materials are in vogue.
I think that the middle class Americans see these as IKEA knock down. Yet in the higher end areas these modern cabinets are very well constructed and expensive.

As for your table, very nice. My thoughts are on the top. At first glance, wow, then I think- can you cantilever the top to support weight, so that you don’t have a “tee ter totter” effect. Otherwords, can a beautiful blond sipping wine, while talking to Harvey Winestein, sit on the table edge without tipping the table downwards? No pun intended, for in the past I did some cantilevered decks- again many years ago. Nice job

nice work jbay! kitchen looks awesome. would love to see a pic of the interior of one of the cabinets as well. looks like most of the base cabinets are drawer units which seems to be the trend these days.

I do like euro-style cabinets and minimalist design. It’s a smart looking kitchen, the backsplash is the perfect compliment to the cabinets and countertop. What are the countertops? They don’t appear to be natural stone.

Thanks everybody!

@Kaleb, I used to try some blogs, but there never was much interest, felt like it was a waste of my time.

@woodbutcherbynight, Top will be 8/4 Walnut, Were still working on the bottom, could be clad in chemetal,
or wood with an ebony stain.

@Desert, Top won’t tip, once it’s attached to the base it should be plenty heavy enough.
(As long as the blondes aren’t over 130 lbs)

@TungOil, Interiors are just melamine. The only pic of the interior is from a small cabinet in the other room, but there all basically the same.

@Rick, I don’t remember for sure, I think they said it was Silestone. It’s made with Quartz and is very hard, not like solid surface materials. I like how the splash goes clear to the ceiling.

Nice to see you posting here. Jbay works in mystery- he set a limit but I saved the original. I may try to duplicate the base… As for his work, like he says- PM for his portfolio and he will send you a link to see some nice work. Also, he interacts more openly on Sundays…. :)

Thanks DW,

but should be mentioned:
I’m building my own version of this table.
This is not my work, only a picture from the client for inspiration.
