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 cabinetry was constructed out of maple and white birch plywood, maple and poplar face frames, maple drawer boxes.
Describe, in detail, the project/item's construction
All cabinetry was constructed using pocket holes including attachment of the face frame. All doors have soft close hinges and the drawers are soft close under mount slides. The laundry door, which is between the refrigerator and pantry cabinet, was added to give the appearance that the continued down the wall. A custom vent hood was built to accommodate the liner insert. The china cabinet with interior lighting was designed to give another element to the kitchen as well as serve a purpose for display. The island is large enough to enhance the room and allow seating for guest and family.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
The best part of the kitchen is where is came from. A corner kitchen originally with a corner double oven and a bi-level peninsula with the sink was in one corner of the room. The beams in the ceiling show where 2 walls were removed to open up the dining area and an outside area. Once the 3 rooms became 1 the kitchen was design around the island. With the island housing the sink, the cook top, swing out pantry, refrigerator are all close by. The double ovens are easily accessible at the end of the island. The outside wall end of the kitchen windows where removed and the deck extended past the new sliding glass doors. An outdoor kitchen is in the future plans. The end next to the doors was designed to enhance that project by adding a under counter refrigerator, win rack with stem ware holder above.
