This is one the recent kitchens we did at work. Its all poplar construction, uv maple interiors. The finish is paint with a light glaze.

I’m a woodworker not a computer geek, but I finally figured out how to add more pictures.

So here ya go.new3new2new 1new4new5

Very nice. Why must you post this stuff? Do you just want me to hate you more? ;)

I like it a lot. Great job again.

Les, This is a fantastic looking kitchen. Very nice job.

Out of curiosity are the supports beneath the wall cabinets structural or ornamental? I have never seen wall cabinets with supports before.

NIce execution. Did your company do the soffit over the island as well?

Its a combination of the designer and our in house designer working together.

Yes, we did the soffit over the island to.

Thanks, Les

Wow Les! Another beauty! I love the soffit work…it’s a great way to eliminate that high ceiling effect and lower the island lights.

But tell me, did they paint the ceiling a gloss or is the light playing effects?

Les, this one is insanely beautiful. Is that granite on the island or quartz?? Another exceptional job. You continue to amaze.
