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?
We used white birch and maple plywood. The slab doors where natural maple veneer on mdf. Drawers are solid maple.
Describe, in detail, the project/item's construction
The cabinetry was constructed with pocket holes that attached the face frames to the cabinetry. We installed steel brackets behind sheet rock to support the floating shelves. The finish was a post catalyzed lacquer. Heavy duty slides where used on the wide drawers to support the amount of storage it will hold.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
The transition from a traditional dark stained kitchen to a modern elegant flat panel front kitchen was dramatic. Planning and coordinating with the contractor for the installation of the steel support for the floating shelves was vital to the success and stabilization of the shelving. The shelves allow the sink area to feel open and inviting.
