What materials/species were used in this project/item?
The cabinets for this bar were constructed out of 3/4″ cherry fiber core. The cherry cabinet doors are mitered raised panels with a 3” stile and rail. The drawer fronts are mitered inverted panels. The cabinets were stained with Pratt and Lambert Rich Mahogany, glazed with Sherwin Williams Van Dyke Brown, then sprayed with a Gemini conversion varnish. The cabinet interiors were constructed out of Roseburg hard rock maple melamine and the drawer boxes were made out of baltic birch. We used Dynaslide full extension drawer tracks, Salice hinges, and brushed nickel cabinet pulls and knobs from Berenson. For cabinet lighting, we used warm LED puck lights from Tresco. The countertops are Amarula granite.
Describe, in detail, the project/item’s construction.
Cabinet Vision software was used for design and production prep. All of the material parts for this project were cut on a Weeke CNC Router and banded on an SCM Olympic Edgebander. A team of builders then assembled the cabinets before they moved on to be stained and finished. The finish we use is a Gemini Conversion varnish and the technique is done by using a Grayco air-assisted sprayer.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
The shape of the 3 tiers in the island are unique and allow the homeowners to prep and serve drinks and food on the lowest level and sit or stand at the bar’s other 2 levels. The 6 cm thickness of the granite on the island makes a statement as well. There are many details that offer style and function: the wine racks, stemware holders, decorative panels, posts, and corbels, and rope crown moulding just to name a few.
List any items that were outsourced.
Employees were a part of the construction of this kitchen from start to finish: the planning and design phase, construction (cabinets, drawer boxes), staining and finishing, and lastly, installation of the cabinets. We outsourced the doors/drawer fronts and decorative corbels/posts, and the granite countertops were outsourced and installed by others.
