Just another one of “those jobs”. nothing much going on here. Cabinets are Alder. The finishing schedule was my nightmare because we used mohawk ultra penetrating and had to layer different colors to get the two tone effect. We had to redo some of it because it looked great in my shop under my lighting, but in their house they have huge windows that have pretty much direct sun. The light reflected differently and made it look missmatched. The overal job turned out nice, but I still wake up screaming over that finish.

Did you do the carving yourself and is the molding under the top shop made, if it is molding. Oh the cabinets look great.

I probably haven’t commented much if at all on your work but it’s fantastic.
Lots and lots of top-notch projects. Very fine looking quality.

Great looking cabinets. I know what you mean about the finishes. I’m glad we have a finishing department. The guy who heads up the finish room is great. We mix up our own finishes, stain and paint. Again, a top knotch job and my hat is off to you….............Jerry

Hi kolwdwrkr;

If all those things I read about you in a preceding brow beating, were true, then you have no business turning out quality projects like this! lol

Nice work.

I’d really like to see the floortoo.

Yeah, I was also wondering about that carving. I saw your carving chisels on your shop page. Did you do that carving? Great pro work, looks great! Very inspiring.
