Way too big for the shop and sure will be happy to it go.

Appliances include 2 dishwashers, one sub zero feezer, one subzero fridge, one subzero fridge/freezer, wine fridge,pop dispenser, drawer microwave… 48” six burner with grill and double ovens, ice maker.

All cabinets are maple veneer plycore 3/4”, 1/2” backs and face framed in poplar with embedded beading. Doors are frame and panel with a 1/4” offset mold around the panel, drawers are the same and some are a solid poplar slab. Drawers are dovetailed front and back in Birch with 1/2 veneer core plywood bottoms hung on the motion guides….......some 37 drawers in all.

First “opps” was a bad measurement from floor to ceiling, Next “opps” was a bad measurement from wall to wall. Third “opps” was the sink,.....................on and on and have to wonedr how a contractor got as far in life as he has making so many “wrong” measurements.

Alas my door parts are all cut out and in abot 15 mintes I will fire up the shaper and back at it.

The whole thing will be hand painted by others (there is a God), glazed, distressed






more and more….................
