This has taken longer than thought. Redesigns etc. take a long time. Finally I had to take all the base cabinets out, so that the new flooring could go in. It was less expensive that way. All in all I am very pleased with the end result. Since I finished I got divorced and have put the house up for sale. I plan on moving to the Austin TX. area to be close to the kids and grands.

Enjoy. I did, with some frustrations thrown in.

pottz: Handles glued up in a jig then shaped. Wood for the uppers is African Mahogany.

What a wonderful job you did on this Madts.
I love the picture, wheer we can see through the house, very Japanese simple and calm, way you live.
Yes life throw us around, but as long as we accept, we can go with it and even with a smile.
New time will come, new stories, new ways, we could never imagine – that’s how life is.
Best of my thoughts, to you my friend,
