Briefly describe your business and the type of products manufactured.
We design, build, finish and install custom cabinetry. Cabinetry includes kitchens, vanities, bars, entertainment centers, wall units, and other custom cabinets.
What materials/species were used in this project/item?
The cabinets were constructed of white birch and maple plywood with natural maple doors and panels. Drawer box's are constructed out of solid maple. Face frames are maple and poplar.
Describe, in detail, the project/item's construction
The cabinets were drawn using KCD and run on our CNC from CNC Factory. Doors and drawer box's were outsourced to Harris Door and Drawer, built to our specifications. The decorative mullion doors were by Decor-Ative Specialties. The cabinet box's are all 3/4 plywood with maple and poplar face frames. The face frames are attached with pocket holes. All the doors have soft close hinges, the drawers have under mount soft close slides.
All kitchen cabinetry was replaced with the new cabinetry to the ceiling.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
The decorative mullions with the antique mirror adds to the overall look of the cook top wall. The challenge for this remodel was to cover the same footprint as the old. The floors had been refinished just the one year prior. We did not move any plumbing or electrical. The sink island was bi-level, which was removed and additional cabinetry behind the sink added to the single level counter space. We transformed most of the base units from pullouts to drawers which add to the convenience and accessibility of what was being stored.
