What materials/species were used in this project/item?
The cabinetry was all paint grade cabinetry with a shop applied lacquer finish. The countertops were rustic Alder with a stain and lacquer finish.
Describe, in detail, the project/item’s construction.
The cabinet construction was done with CNC machining and assembly processes. The countertops were hand manufactured by our craftsmen. The cabinet fronts were manufactured by Walzcraft Industries. There were unusual site circumstances to deal with as noted below.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
The project was installed in a converted garage. In this space there was a cement curb that created a step along two of the walls where we were providing millwork. The solution was to make all of the lower drawers on the back wall and the bottom half of the cabinet on the right end, shallower. It made for some additional work, but the end result hides it perfectly.List any items that were outsourced (not produced by you or your shop).
